The Blue Rider Press edition of This Town
by Mark Leibovich was a New York Times
bestseller last summer and hailed by the New York Times
as a “spot on” portrayal of the American political landscape. With this week’s publication of Plume’s trade paperback edition, Washington, DC “bus king” advertising for the book is rolling around the streets of the nation’s capital in advance of this Saturday’s White House Correspondents Dinner.
