What’s Black and White and Red All Over? Books About Dick Cheney, Apparently

takeover-angler-spread.jpg

Last September, Little, Brown published Pulitzer-winning Boston Globe reporter Charlie Savage‘s Takeover, a book about the ways that the Bush administration has sought to expand the concept of executive power in the American presidency, focusing in part on vice-president Dick Cheney‘s role in that process.

A few days ago, The Penguin Press published Pulitzer-winning Washington Post reporter Barton Gellman‘s Angler, a book focusing exclusively on Cheney and the unprecedented power he has assumed for the office of the vice-presidency during his two terms of office.

Of course, the covers are completely different; notice, for example, the splash of blue curtain in the Angler illustration.
