Author(s): Ron Chernow
A #1 New York Times BestsellerA Pulitzer Prize-Winning AuthorWith lucidity, breadth, and meticulousness, Ron Chernow sheds new light on the man whom Walt Whitman described as "nothing heroic . . . and yet the greatest hero." This is America's greatest biographer bringing movingly to life one of our finest but most underappreciated presidents. In a grand synthesis of painstaking research and literary brilliance, he makes sense of all sides of Grant, a simple Midwesterner at once so ordinary and so extraordinary.
Ron Chernow is the prizewinning author of six previous books and the recipient of the 2015 National Humanities Medal. His first book, The House of Morgan, won the National Book Award, Washington: A Life won the Pulitzer Prize for Biography, and Alexander Hamilton--the inspiration for the Broadway musical--won the American History Book Prize. A past president of PEN America, Chernow has been the recipient of eight honorary doctorates. He resides in Brooklyn, New York.
