About the Book
In the summer of 1995 Monica Lewinsky, twenty-one years old and fresh from college, started work as an unpaid intern in the White House, a job that brought her into contact with the then President of the USA, Bill Clinton. What followed would come to dominate the world's media, as a young girl's crush on the world's most powerful man led to the cruellest public humiliation for her – and ultimately to the President's impeachment on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice. Bestselling biographer Andrew Morton – whose Diana: Her True Story broke to the world the truth behind the marriage of the Prince and Princess of Wales – exclusively interviewed Monica, her family and friends, to provide an in-depth and often terrifying picture of the abuses of power, and of a young woman subjected to trial by media, while herself prevented by law from defending herself.
