Longtime Willamette Writer’s Guild member, Paul R. Letersky, has a new book coming out. The Director: My Years Assisting J. Edgar Hoover was published by Scribner/Simon and Schuster with a release date of July 13, 2021. Paul worked for two years as an assistant to Hoover, and then spent 5 years working as a Special Agent for the FBI.
Per the Author: “J. Edgar Hoover; a legend whose legacy is unlike any other in our country’s history. Yet, no one really knew him. His life will never be fully defined. The question is always whether anyone tells or knows the whole story. They do not, nor do I. This is not another Hoover biography. It is my story and the only book ever written by a member of his personal office staff, and it offers an up-close account on how he was known to me.”
