About the Book

Includes never-before-printed selections from the President's and Edith's lover letters.

"Shachtman's analysis of the Wilson-Galt relationship is handled intelligently and unpretentiously. He does not canonize or romanticize his subjects-he draws them as they were, faulty lines and all. He knows his history and writes about it in colorful, compact prose."

-Hartford Courant
