"Wil Haygood blends the political with the personal in this portrait of White House butler Eugene Allen. Allen, an African-American, served eight US presidents (from Harry Truman to Ronald Reagan ) for 34 years - a span of time that included remarkable gains in civil rights." The Christian Science Monitor
