Kitty Kelley to write book about the Senate
The woman who profiled Oprah, Nancy Reagan and Frank Sinatra has a new subject: the Senate
Kitty Kelley, author of Oprah: A Biography and Nancy Reagan: The Unauthorized Biography, will next tackle the influence of women in the 113th Congress, publisher Grand Central Publishing announced today.
According to the release, the book, slated for a spring 2016 release, will “investigate” the power of the Senate, which now includes 20 women.
“As a woman who cheers the accomplishments of other women on both sides of the aisle, I come to this project with a positive bias … More importantly, through in-depth reporting I will try to answer the question that so many are asking: can the presence of women break the ugly gridlock now choking Congress?” Kelley said in the release.
But the new book would mark a turn to the political that nonetheless leaves us wondering how and where Kelley will strike a balance between behind-the-scenes gabbing and all-over reporting. Surely we can’t be the only ones wondering what Elizabeth Warren and Susan Collins talk about in the elevator?
