PRAISE FOR NATASHA KORECKI'S ONLY IN CHICAGO:

“As the circus of the Blagojevich saga unfolded, Natasha Korecki was right at the center—with stories, scoops, blogs, and tweets. It was a seriocomedy suited to her enterprise and imagination, and she’s the one to write the book.” —Roger Ebert

“Natasha Korecki's chronicle of the Blagojevich saga was a cutting-edge lesson in how to blend old-fashioned reporting with new media. Whether we were reading her scoops for the Sun-Times, her must-read blog, or her tweets, we had a front-row seat for a real-life story that trumped anything Hollywood could have conjured.” —Richard Roeper

"Now that reporter Natasha Korecki is leaving the federal courthouse for the political beat, her Sun-Times readers and Twitter fans won’t be getting the scoop from her on corruption trials and other juicy cases anymore. But thanks to Korecki’s soon-to-be-published book, Only in Chicago, they’ll still have another chance to savor the inside access she had to former Governor Rod Blagojevich’s legal ordeals and surrounding circuses." —Robert Feder, Time Out Chicago

"And you thought we were done with Blago! The Sun-Times' Natasha Korecki, one of the best reporters in Chicago (non-WBEZ category, of course), has released a book about the Rod Blagojevich." —Marcus Gilmer, WBEZ

"Korecki covered the Blagojevich trial in her old job as the Sun-Times’ Federal Court reporter, where she wrote the Blago Blog. However, Korecki promises [Only in Chicago] will contain material that did not appear in the newspaper." —Edward McClelland, NBC Chicago

"Fantastic. There's so much that you forgot about what happened in that case...[Only in Chicago is a fascinating read." —Marcus Gilmer, WBEZ

"Her Blago blog and continuous tweets had enormous followings as the trials progressed, and now Korecki has incorporated much of her reporting into a new book about the Blagojevich saga that also contains some intriguing new revelations." —Eddie Arruza, Chicago Tonight, WTTW

Format: Paperback
Aptly titled and really well written. From beginning to end, this brings insight into the world of Rod Blagojevich and his own brand of politics.

Format: Paperback
Only in Chicago will take you on quite a ride through the tumultuous story of Rod Blagojevich and the complex connections of those surrounding him at the time of the scandal. Natasha Korecki captures every nuance of the case and relates it with journalistic brilliance. I could not put the book down and am eagerly awaiting a follow-up, as well as any future cases covered by Korecki.

For an outsider looking in, this laid out the various scandals in a very readable way. This made political follies in my state look tame. I enjoyed Korecki's writing and look forward to more from her in the future.
