Bai deals a poignant, hugely unique, and news-making reappraisal of Hart's fall from grace (and missed political legacy) as he makes the compelling case that this used to be the instant while the paradigm shifted-private lives grew to become public, information grew to become leisure, and politics turned the stuff of web page Six.
