Beatty (senior editor, The Atlantic Monthly) collects "some of the best biographical and historical writing I know of," choosing his 21 selections for their quality and variety of approaches. Among the writings included are John Dos Passos on Theodore Roosevelt, H.L. Mencken on Warren Harding, Robert Caro on Sam Rayburn, Norman Mailer on John F. Kennedy, Mike Royko on Richard J. Daley, and (somewhat immodestly) Beatty himself on former Boston Mayor James Curley. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR ( Read More
