Jon Meacham has written Jefferson: The Art of Power which comes out on November 13. Meacham, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author, delves into a much visited field - Thomas Jefferson. He gives us aJefferson that is a politician and the president but also a man of many passions who loved the idea of America most of all. He seems to embody the 'art of power' while struggling to led a nation through perilous times. A worthy read by a worth author.
William Manchester wrote the first two books in the trilogy, The Last Lion, about the life of Winston Churchill. Before Manchester died in 2004, he chose Paul Reid to finish his work. The first two were truly remarkable works and Reid continued that effort. This third volume is subtitled Defender of the Realm and covers Churchill's years as Prime Minister of Great Britain. It was more that 20 years since the second volume but those who have read this say it is excellent unparalleled portrait and a biography worth reading. Perhaps an interesting title to read if you are waiting for Killing Lincoln.
