Reputation: Portraits in Power Hardcover – October 6, 2008
Frequently bought together

“Where is Marjorie Williams when we need her? Surely we could have used her shrewd eye and incisive voice this week, amid so much congressional posturing, not to mention the theatrics of the campaign debates...."Reputation” provides wonderful sketches, superb examples of a silky stylist at the top of her art. If I had time enough or treasure I would hand a copy to every freshman journalism student and say: Make sure this genre does not die amid a flurry of podcasts and Twitters, and while you're at it look up Lytton Strachey -- in the library, not on Wikipedia.”
Buffalo News, October 19, 2008
"Timeless ... sublime ... Williams’ profiles, known for their fearlessness and wicked humor if not for their mercy, are always elegantly written and pitch-perfect ... She simply sees better than anyone and is unafraid to tell exactly what she sees."
Boston Globe, October 24, 2008
"As it happens, 'Boogie Man' appears at the same time as the late Marjorie Williams's book of Washington profiles, 'Reputation.' Williams's portrait of Atwater is both far more nuanced, and ultimately far more damning, than the documentary. Stacking the deck even against a cardsharp, as Williams knew, is still stacking the deck."
Shelf Awareness, October 22, 2008
“Marjorie Williams's writing displays the effortless grace of Tiger Woods's golf swing. Sadly her death from cancer in 2005 at the age of 47 cut short a stellar career. Now her husband, writer Timothy Noah, has assembled 12 of her sparkling political profiles as a welcome companion to an earlier collection, The Woman at the Washington Zoo. It's impossible to read these insightful portraits without mingled feelings of admiration and loss.”
