The Butler

A Witness To History

by Wil Haygood

I’ve read parts of the original Washington Post story that Haygood did on the life of Eugene Allen and his years working as a butler in the White House and was looking forward to a more fleshed out story. Instead, this book only covers Haygood finding and befriending Allen and the subsequent making of the movie based on his life.

If you are a movie buff, you will find the part of the filmmaking interesting, but I was disappointed that I didn’t get more of a biography of Eugene Allen.
