“washington: A Life”

by Ron Chernow

Whether it’s via their tone, topic, or tenor, certain works just say “America.” Here is one such title, suggested by Grateful American Book Prize judge Dr. Louise Mirrer, president and CEO of the New-York Historical Society:

“Washington: A Life” by Ron Chernow. The father of our country becomes fully three-dimensional in this masterful, Pulitzer Prize-winning biography that captures the man — including both his troubles and his triumphs — behind the myth.

A Patriotic Pick is a monthly feature in partnership with the Washington Independent Review of Books.
