Newspaperman Writes Political Best-Seller

A book reviewer had nothing but the highest praise on August 28, 1959 for a newspaperman’s first novel:  “It may be a long time before a better one comes along.”

How right he was!  “Advise and Consent” by Houston native Allen Drury was the last work of political fiction to win the Pulitzer Prize — more than half a century ago.  Read all about it in “This Week in Texas History” for Wednesday, August 27 through Tuesday, September 2.
