In the introduction Christopher Sten explores two broad categorieso prose—historical writing ocused on politics and writing about the livesand times o the people o D.C. with ocial Washington as the setting.Sten also denes a core group o “Washington writers,” native and natural-ized authors who ocus much o their work on the city: Frederick Douglass,Henry Adams, Jean Toomer, John Dos Passos, Gore Vidal, Ward Just, andSusan Richards Shreve, among others.Included are letters, essays, short stories, poems, and excerpts rom novelsand historical writings by a broad selection o such renowned Americanand international authors as Nathaniel Hawthorne, Charles Dickens, Alexisde Tocqueville, Louisa May Alcott, Walt Whitman, Mark Twain, SinclairLewis, Norman Mailer, Mary McCarthy, and Joseph Heller.
