Ford Dishes Dirt Posthumously

Prior to his death, former President Gerald Ford had a number of conversations with journalist Thomas DeFrank, conversations that Ford made DeFrank keep a secret until after his death. Following Fordís passing, Frank has announced that those discussions will be made public in the Fall, †in a yet to be titled memoir published by G. P. Putnam's Sons.



In the new book, DeFrank promises Fordís views on Richard Nixon, other U.S. and foreign leaders, politics, the Iraq war, and the world at large in what he expects to be a very enjoyable read.



"The Jerry Ford who emerged from our conversations was profoundly different from his steady if colorless stereotype: funny, reflective, chatty, gossipy-and unusually candid. Historians can handle the heavy lifting; this book presents the human side of an everyday guy talking like former presidents never do," said DeFrank.
