    In lieu of an unrevealing famous-people-i-have-known autobiography, the owner of the washington post has chosen to be remarkably candid about the insecurities prompted by remote parents and a difficult marriage to the charismatic, manic-depressive phil graham, who ran the newspaper her father acquired. katharine's account of her years as subservient daughter and wife is so painful that by the time she finally asserts herself at the post following phil's suicide in 1963 (more than halfway through the book), readers will want to cheer. after that, watergate is practically an anticlimax.
