Quotes & Awards

  • “In a sharp and moving biography, Auricchio captures the essence of the ‘French hero of the American Revolution—the Hero of Two Worlds, the Apostle of Liberty.’”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Provincial aristocrat, American warrior, and primary author of the 1789 Declaration of the Rights of Man, the Marquis de Lafayette is among the most fascinating characters to come of age during the era of Revolutions. In her engrossing biography of Lafayette’s bi-continental career, author Laura Auricchio is as adept at recounting the Marquis’s first, awkward moments negotiating the subtleties of Versailles as she is bringing to life his seemingly father-son relationship with George Washington. An impeccably researched and compelling portrait of a man whose complex legacy is still seen very differently on both sides of the Atlantic.”

    Andrew Curran, dean of the arts and humanities, Wesleyan University
