American White House intern who nearly ended a Presidency.
After graduating with a psychology degree in 1995, Lewinsky moved to Washington, D.C., where she worked at the White House as an unpaid summer intern starting in July 1995, moving to a paid position there in December 1995.
Between November 1995 and March 1997, Lewinsky had an intimate relationship with President Bill Clinton. She later testified that the relationship involved oral sexi n the Oval Officeand other sexual contact but that sexual intercourse did not occur.
Under oath, Clinton later denied having had "a sexual affair," "sexual relations," or "a sexual relationship" with her and on January 26, 1998 claimed "I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky" in an infamous nationally televised White House news conference.
Later on, when confronted by the evidence of a semen stain on Lewinsky’s blue dress, Clinton admitted that he lied to the American people and that he had had "inappropriate" intimate contact with Lewinsky. His defence was that he didn’t believe that “oral sex” was “sex” (in a legalistic sense) and that because certain acts were performed on him, not by him, he did not engage in sexual relations.
In December 2006, Lewinsky graduated with a master's degree in social psychology from the London School of Economics.
This is a very fine First Edition hardback copy of Andrew Morton's 1999 biography of Lewinsky, Monica's Story (Michael O'Mara Books Limited), signed to the main title page by both Lewinsky and the author, Andrew Morton. Both have signed in full and in ink. Condition is very good and the book comes complete with its dustwrapper.
(Many signed copies of this book are to be found; the signatures are often on bookplates and often with her first name alone. This book is a perfect example of how it should be signed.)
