Of Kitty Kelley's book on the Bush family, I said it was about as hard hitting as a sorority-house pillow fight. This book on Nancy Reagan is somewhat better, primarily because Nancy Reagan -- if she got into a sorority-house pillow fight -- would be the only girl in the room with a chainsaw and a shotgun. Throw her softballs all day long if you like, but the truth shines through regardless.

Nancy the Nut Case
I was amazed at the direction this Kitty Kelley book took in discussing the former first lady. Nancy Reagan is portrayed as a total 'nut case' and the stories are endless and priceless! From worrying about her fat ankles, to manipulating fashion designers, to chasing Frank Sinatra, to indiscrete sex acts in a car on the road to Las Vegas--I could not put this book down!
Publishers Weekly, 1992-02-03 This infamous look at the former First Lady spent 12 weeks on PW 's hardcover bestseller list and inspired George Carpozi Jr.'s scathing Poison Pen: The Unauthorized Biography of Kitty Kelley. More than 800,000 hardcovers are in print. (Mar.)
