Editorial Reviews

Unknown

Gordon S. Wood The New York Review of Books By far the best biography of Adams ever written...McCullough's special gift as an artist is his ability to re-create past human beings in all their fullness and all their humanity. In John and Abigail he has found characters worthy of his talent.

Walter Isaacson
Time A masterwork of storytelling.

Michiko Kakutani
The New York Times Lucid and compelling...[Written] in a fluent narrative style that combines a novelist's sense of drama with a scholar's meticulous attention to the historical record.

Marie Arana
The Washington Post McCullough is one of our most gifted living writers.
