Tom covered Gerald R. Ford for a third of a century and conducted dozens of interviews with the 38th President. In 1991 Ford agreed to be interviewed every year with the understanding that nothing he said could be disclosed until his death.
The resulting bestseller, "Write it When I`m Gone: Remarkable off-the-record Conversations with Gerald R. Ford," documents Ford`s feelings about Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan and others with a remarkable candor not seen in Ford`s official memoir.
His reporting has been praised as "riveting." ABC News calls him "excellent, well-connected and influential," and "legendary." The American Journalism Review rated him "one of the unsung stars of Washington journalism." And President Gerald R. Ford called him "one of the finest journalists I have ever known. Everyone I know feels the same way: you are fair, trustworthy and professional."
One of Washington`s most respected President-watchers, Tom DeFrank is a political journalist and author and is the senior correspondent covering the White House on a regular basis. He is a contributing editor at National Journal and was Washington bureau chief of the New York Daily News from 1996 to 2012.
