"Wonderfully absorbing.... Magnificent...a sweeping narrative of the outward man and a shrewd examination of his charcter...it is one of those rare works that is both definitive for the period it covers and fascinating to read." --The New York Times Book Review
"A classic...Entertaining and colorful, powerful and fascinating."--Chicago Tribune
Edmund Morris was born in Nairobi, Kenya, in 1940. He was schooled there, and studied music, history, and literature at Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa. After leaving Africa at the age of twenty-four, he worked for six years as an advertising copywriter in London and New York. He became a full-time writer in 1972. His first book, The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt, began life as a screenplay. It was published in 1979 and won the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award. In 1985, Morris was appointed the official biographer of President Ronald Reagan. The resultant work, Dutch: A Memoir of Ronald Reagan (1999), was and remains controversial because of its revolutionary narrative technique. Theodore Rex (2001), the second volume of Morris’s Roosevelt trilogy, won the Los Angeles Times Book Award for biography. Before completing his trilogy with Colonel Roosevelt, Morris published a short life of Beethoven. He lives in New York and Kent, Connecticut, with his wife and fellow biographer, Sylvia Jukes Morris.
