Beschreibung

Caro's remarkable four-part biography of Lyndon Johnson In Means of Ascent, the Pulitzer award-wining historian carries Johnson through his service in World War II and the foundation and the myths of his long-concealed fortune.

Portrait

Robert A. Caro has been described as 'the greatest political biographer of our times' (Sunday Times) and 'a world authority on the nature of power and how to use it' (Guardian). Born and raised in New York City, he graduated from Princeton University, later became a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University, and was an investigative reporter for Newsday for six years.

His first book, The Power Broker, won the Pulitzer Prize in biography and the Frances Parkman Prize of the Society of American Historians. His subsequent books comprise a multi-volume work, The Years of Lyndon Johnson, 'regarded by many as the greatest political biography of the modern era' (The Times). Over the course of four volumes, he has become one of the most lauded writers of his generation, winning three National Book Critics Circle Awards, the National Book Award and a further Pulitzer Prize. He is currently at work on the fifth and final volume.

In addition, Robert Caro has also been awarded virtually every other major literary honour, including the Gold Medal in Biography from the National Academy of Arts and Letters and the National Humanities Medal, awarded by President Barack Obama, the highest award in the humanities given in the United States. He lives in New York City with his wife, Ina, an historian and writer.

Pressestimmen

"Like its predecessor this is a wonderfully detailed, magnificently readable study that gives us not only Johnson's character but also a vivid picture of America in the 1940's" Literary Review "Readers of Robert Caro's Means of Ascent are in for a white-knuckle hair-raising tale...riveting and explosive" Time "Uputdownable...as a compulsive as any Hollywood thriller" Evening Standard "His depiction of Texas is as brilliant as his account of Lydnon Johnson's driven soul...This is a richly rewarding book" New Statesman & Society
