1984, ISBN: 9780394510538
New York: Random House, 1984. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/near fine. [vi], 249 p.: 8 unnumbered pages of illustrations; 24 cm. Red cloth spine with gilt stamped spine title; tan paper over boards with gilt stamped initials of author. The extraordinary story of the relationship between two powerful men, father and son: Hugh Morrow, Nelson Rockefeller's speech writer, press secretary, and confidante for 20 years, and his son Lance Morrow, a journalist. An "intimate and intense record, a meditation on everything that bonded these men together and forced them apart--the crises of the father's divorce, the son's religious conversion, the death by cancer of a seventeen-year-old brother who was, the family agreed, the best of them all" [from the dust jacket]. Yet, above all, this is the surprising account of Nelson Rockefeller, a man "who could be charming and exuberant in public, but remote and increasingly sour in private, an embittered chieftain who collected first-rate talents . . . and stored Picassos in his Washington bomb shelter," who "became at last a sinister and sometimes paranoid figure, a feudal lord working gamely and vainly at the political disciplines of democratic America" [from the dust jacket]. Interestingly, for those aware of the circumstances surrounding Rockefeller's death, Hugh Morrow announced his death and concocted a phony story to protect his patron's reputation and, in so doing, ruined his own. Book is in Fine Condition. Dust jacket is in Near Fine Condition: upper edge lightly rubbed., Random House, 1984
