Venerable D.C. Politico Carol Schwartz Releases Autobiography

D.C. political stalwart Carol Schwartz is releasing her autobiography, “Quite a Life! From Defeat to Defeat … and Back,” which details D.C.’s political history of the past 40 years from an insider’s viewpoint.

Schwartz, who served on the D.C. Council from 1985 to 1989 and again from 1997 to 2009, gives a personal account of her difficult childhood in West Texas to her unexpected political victories and losses in both public and private life — including the sudden death of her husband.

“It is honest, truthful and revealing,” she said of the book. “I knew early on when I started this project several years ago that if I was not going to do it candidly, outspokenly and truthfully, why bother? So I did it the only way I could — and I am glad.

“I spent a long time working on this story of my life,” Schwartz said. “It is comprehensive in every way. If you want someone to give you a sugar-coated synopsis of a life, go elsewhere. But if you want an outspoken autobiography — with pictures galore — that also talks about the history of D.C. since Home Rule, takes you behind the scenes of chaotic campaigns, as well as shows you the inner workings of government — all rolled together — come on this ride with me.”

“Quite a Life! From Defeat to Defeat … and Back” is available for at caroldc.com.
