Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

First edition, first print hardback of MONICA'S STORY, by Andrew Morton and published by Michael O'Mara Books Limited in 1999. Flatsigned by Monica Lewinsky on the title page (see picture below).

The book is in very good condition (clean blue boards and bright gold lettering on spine) with only minor wear to the dust jacket, which is not price clipped (light rubbing to edges, very slight bumping to corners, back cover lightly soiled, nothing drastic at all). Internally, the pages are clean and tight (despite some 'splitting' to the binding, which appears to be a result of the book being too tightly bound) and there are no tears and no other inscriptions.

In the summer of 1995, Monica Lewinsky, twenty-one years old and fresh from college, was taken on as an unpaid summer intern by the Office of Legislative Affairs, a job which brought her into contact with the President of the United States, Bill Clinton.

What happened next has been documented worldwide, as a young and vivacious girl's 'crush' on the world's ultimate authority figure led to the cruellest public humiliation for her and her family.

For Bill Clinton, the affair was one of many personal blemishes on a public career. However, for Monica, or 'that woman' as Bill Clinton publicly referred to her, the events of that two year period were catastrophic, at once demeaning and soul-destroying.

Betrayed by her 'friend' Linda Tripp, Monica found herself a pawn in America's biggest power struggle. Trapped by Starr's inquisition, Monica, her family and friends were all threatened with jail sentences if they did not co-operate.

While Monica waited to face the Grand Jury, the media conducted its own trial. People who barely knew her were prepared to take cash from tabloid TV programmes in exchange for salacious gossip. Worst of, while the world had its say about Monica, she was prevented by law from defending herself.

In Monica's Story, the real Monica Lewinsky emerged at last. Andrew Morton exclusively interviewed Monica, her family and her friends, unfolding the story of a generous-hearted but troubled American girl, whose apparently 'ideal' background propelled her into a series of self-destructive relationships with older men.

Astonishingly candid, this book is surprising, not so much because its subject is an unusual, one-off character, but because what happened to Monica Lewinsky might have happened to any American girl who found herself in the right place at the wrong time.
