Author: Book 'This Town' shows 'gilded age' and 'carnival' of Washington

(CNN) – Author Mark Leibovich covered politics for years, and is now the chief national correspondent for The New York Times Magazine.

Leibovich's new book "This Town" describes Washington as a city that is "hopelessly interconnected," with "beautifully busy people constantly writing the story of their own lives."

    "Beautifully busy"? Bad prose. Don't think I'll read it.

    Also: is this site in the business of selling books now?
