Coya Knutson told the press that "Family matters are personal and I will not discuss them in public." Now, Pomegranate Press is publishing COYA COME HOME, the intimate biography of Congresswoman Coya Knutson, the Minnesota farmwife who took Washington by storm...and the true story behind the "Coya, Come Home" newspaper headlines that jolted the world."Sparkling, exuberant, bubbling, energetic...she was heading for the moon.She was full of life, electric--and people liked her.She could go into a room and get the dead to wake up." Vice-President Walter F. Mondale "COYA COME HOME," a newspaper headline that reverberated around the world in May 1958, referred to the publication of a letter written by Congresswoman Knutson's husband demanding that she abandon her political aspirations and return home to be a full-time housewife. He charged that the 45-year-old Congresswoman and her handsome 29-year-old administrative assistant were having a love affair. As a consequence of "the letter," Coya Knutson lost her Congressional seat; her personal life was in shambles and her political career was permanently destroyed. For many readers it was simply an amusing tale of the hayseed farmer who wanted his pretty blonde wife back home in the kitchen rather than on Capitol Hill. However, it was also a story of political intrigue, domestic violence and the stifling social attitudes of the time.
Reviews about Coya Come Home: A Congresswoman's Journey (4):
Hugighma
Read this based on a recommendation from a friend who knew Coya and was glad I did. Most interesting and insightful view of an unusual woman.
Arcanescar
this is an "easy read" book.....and intersting....i loved it....brought back many memories...my dad worked for a congressman at the time....poor Coya....today it would, hopefully, have a different outcome.

As young girl I worked for Coya for a few months in early 1957. I had a great deal of respect for her and Bill Kjeldahl. There was definitely not anything going on there. I left in June 1957 to marry a handsome young Air Force second lieutenant. I have photographs of Coya at our wedding reception. So I was particularly pleased to read this book that brought back memories.
Irostamore
I thought that the story was fascinating. I grew up in the area and had always heard the story of "Coya" never knowing any of the characters. The book tells the story of the struggle of a hometown girl that was filled with passion and how she falls into politics and "tragically" falls out. The book shows just how corrupt the political scene can be, especially to a woman from a small midwestern town.
