A Fascination with Deep Throat

Ever since my early teens, I’ve been fascinated with Deep Throat. Obviously I’m not referring to the infamous porn movie of that era.

After more then 3 decades, Deep Throat’s identity was revealed when Vanity Fair published an article late last year called I’m the Guy They Called Deep Throat.

What an end to this mystery, which has fascinated and captivated millions for so many years, when it was revealed Deep Throat was actually Mark Felt, the number two at the FBI at the time of the Watergate break-in!

So you can imagine my delight and excitement when these two books were published recently! The Secret Man: The Story of Watergate’s Deep Throat by Bob Woodward and A G-Man’s Life: The FBI, Being “Deep Throat”, and The Struggle for Honor in Washington by Mark Felt.

I’m not exaggerating when I say I had the time of my life reading these two books written by the Washington Post reporter & Deep Throat who met secretly several times in an underground parking garage as they worked to expose the Watergate scandal.
