"This is the Washington novel. REGRETS ONLY takes the reader inside the most powerful institutions in the capital-from the White House to the Georgetown salons, from the newsroom of the most powerful daily newspaper to the bedroom of the Vice President of the United States. And ultimately, to his wife's secret hideaway in the Executive Office Building, where she entertains the Washington bureau chief of the powerful newsmagazine WEEKLY. REGRETS ONLY is the story of two exciting and passionate women-Allison Sterling and Sara Adabelle Grey-one a blond, beautiful, successful reporter for THE DAILY, the other the ravishing, auburn-haired wife of the vice President; and of two men, Desmond Shaw and William Rosewell Grey III, on the WEEKLY bureau chief, the other the Vice President (soon to be President) of the United States. These four magnetic people are locked in a shifting relationship that threatens the reputations of their respective journals and ultimately the prestige of the Presidency itself. Throughout the intoxicating and suspenseful novel, Quinn brings her characters together, in passionate love and conflict, in a series of satirical and hilarious scenes from inside Washington life, a world she knows better than anyone."--BOOK COVER
The party : a guide to adventurous entertaining by Sally Quinn( Book )

4 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In "The Party", Sally Quinn turns her trademark sharp wit on the Washington social scene and offers an irreverent look at what goes on at the parties you read about in the columns. From seating debacles to real-life scandals, she reveals her firsthand experiences as a member of the Washington power elite to illustrate how to entertain for any occasion. No one knows better than Quinn how to make parties work. She has thrown some of the most talked-about parties and has attended most of the others. As Quinn writes, all that is necessary is that the host live by the golden rule: "Treat your guests the way you would like to be treated." "The Party" provides a checklist of ideas to help make the important decisions-- such as what time of day (or night) or month and how to choose the invitations, the place, the food, the booze, the setting, the table, the entertainment, and, above all, the guests. Within these guidelines, Quinn tells about her own adventures, stories, and techniques from all kinds of different parties-- from the elaborate, formal dinner to the impromptu get-together. Her playful, poignant, and often hilarious accounts of party disasters from her own and others' parties will strike a chord with anyone who has ever entertained. "The Party" is not only an amusing and lively glimpse into the party scene but also a useful and practical guide to making your own parties a success and guaranteeing that your guests will want to come back
A life's work : fathers and sons by Benjamin C Bradlee( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ben Bradlee's all-American football player father lost his job in the Depression but never lost his balance and energy. Living on a borrowed estate, he undertook to clear the property, and his young son bonded with his father as they worked alongside each other in the woods. When thirteen-year-old Ben contracted polio, his father nursed him back to health until they could go to work again. Now, Washington Post editor Ben tells the story of how this lifelong love of working outdoors enabled him to forge an intimate connection with his own son, Quinn. Born with a heart defect and learning disabled, Quinn writes about how his father gave him courage and confidence, and tells wistfully how their roles have reversed and how he has become his father's protector. Sally Quinn, wife and mother, offers her observation on fathers and sons in this joyous celebration of a special relationship.--From publisher description

A good life : newspapering and other adventures by Benjamin C Bradlee( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the witty, candid story of a daring young man who made his own way to the heights of American journalism and public life, of the great adventure that took him at only twenty years old straight from Harvard to almost four years in the shooting war in the South Pacific, and back, from a maverick New Hampshire weekly to an apprenticeship for Newsweek in postwar Paris, then to the Washington Bureau chief's desk, and finally to the apex of his career at The Washington Post." "Bradlee took the helm of The Washington Post in 1965. He and his reporters transformed it into one of the most influential and respected news publications in the world, reinvented modern investigative journalism, and redefined the way news is reported, published, and read. Under his direction, the paper won eighteen Pulitzer prizes. His leadership and investigative drive following the break-in at the Democratic National Committee led to the downfall of a president, and kept every president afterward on his toes." "Bradlee, backed every step of the way by the Graham family, challenged the federal government over the right to publish the Pentagon Papers - and won. His ingenuity, and the spirited reporting of Sally Quinn, now his wife, led to the creation of the Style Section, a revolutionary newspaper feature in its time, now copied by just about every paper in the country."

Finding magic : a spiritual memoir of power, politics, and a little voodoo by Sally Quinn( )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author, journalist, television reporter, and longtime Washington insider reflects on the spiritual quest that has brought deeper meaning to her life--and kept her grounded within the high-powered political world of Washington, D.C.'s elite--her renowned writing career, her celebrity marriage, and her legendary role as doyenne of the capital's social scene.In this emotionally involving, illuminating memoir, the legendary Washington Post journalist, author, and "superstar hostess" (Vanity Fair) talks candidly about her life at the white-hot center of power and the surprising spiritual quest that has driven her for more than half a century.While working as a reporter, caring for a learning-disabled son with her husband, longtime Washington Post executive editor Benjamin Bradlee, reigning over the capital's social scene, and remaining intimately connected with national politics, Sally Quinn yearned to understand what truly made the world--and her life--tick. After years of searching, most of which occurring in the secular capital of the world, she came to realize that the time she spent with friends and family--the evenings of shared hospitality and intimate fellowship--provided spiritual nourishment and that this theme has been woven into all the most important moments of her life.In this spiritual memoir, Quinn speaks frankly about her varied, provocative spiritual experiences--from her Southern family of Presbyterians and psychics, to voodoo lessons from her Baptist nanny, her trials as a hospitalized military kid in Japan as the Korean War begins, to her adventures as a Post reporter and columnist and her experience as one of the first female news anchors on national television; her battles with the Nixon administration, Watergate, and other scandals that have rocked the nation; her courtship and long marriage to one of the most authoritative figures in the media; her role as the capital's most influential hostess; and her growing fascination with religious issues. This fascination led to her pioneering work in creating the most visited religious site on the web, OnFaith.co, where she reports on the unseen driving force of American life.Throughout this radiant, thoughtful, and surprisingly intimate memoir, Quinn reveals how "it's all magic"--the many forms of what draws us together and provides meaning to all we do. Her roller coaster and irreverent but surprisingly spiritual story allows us to see how the infinite wonder of God and the values of meaningful conversation, experience, and community are available to us all.Finding Magic includes 16 pages of exclusive photographs
