GOOD COMPANY… Last year, right after Marjorie Williams of The Washington Post died, I wrote that I hoped a publisher would put together a collection of her extraordinary profiles of DC power players and other writings. Her husband Timothy Noah of Slate devoted himself to precisely that task, and the resulting book, The Woman at the Washington Zoo, was a big hit. Now the book is the co-winner of PEN’s Martha Allbrand Award for First Nonfiction. Previous winners of the prize include Nick Lemann, Amy Wilentz, Nina Bernstein, Philip Gourevitch, and Serge Schmemann. So Marjorie finds herself, as in life she always did, in good company.
