Clover Adams: A Gilded and Heartbreaking Life by Natalie Dykstra

This is one of those rare novelesque biographies than can change the way one thinks about a whole country, a whole century, and certainly one city: Washington DC. Out of five stars I give six, lit up in flashing neon, to Natalie Dysktra's beautifully researched Clover Adams.

Definitely on my top 10 list for 2012.
