Quotes & Awards

  • “The second in the author’s series entitled American Portraits, this is one of the increasingly popular ‘small stories’ that give so much insight into the men, women, and events of history. A short but thrilling page-turner. Brands burrows into Burr’s psyche and exposes his failings as he details the outstanding talents that were so sadly wasted.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “A wonderfully skilled narrative historian.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • “Brands is masterly.”

    Economist
