From the Publisher
Annotation In this combination political memoir and coming-out story, the former governor of New Jersey, James McGreevey combines politics, power, and desire. In order to fit in, and to rise within the New Jersey political machine, McGreevey was married, and cultivated the image of a heterosexual man, while in truth he was closeted, conflicted, and gay. Everything fell apart in 2004 amid reports of an extra-marital affair with another man, and McGreevey eventually resigned. THE CONFESSION contains insights into the hardball game of local politics as well as McGreevey's candid revelations about the life he tried to keep secret.
Editors Note A memoir by a former New Jersey governor who acknowledged his homosexuality during his 2004 resignation speech describes the struggles he faced with his sexual identity during his Catholic upbringing, his political rise and fall, and his decision to publicly declare his orientation. 150,000 first printing.
