Product Description Amazon.com Review A compelling chronicle of a nation and its leaders during the period when modern America was created. With an uncanny feel for detail and a novelist's grasp of drama and depth Doris Kearns Goodwin brilliantly narrates the interrelationship between the inner workings of the Roosevelt White House and the destiny of the United States. Goodwin paints a comprehensive intimate portrait that fills in a historical gap in the story of our nation under the Roosevelts. Review “Goodwin has pulled off the double trick of making Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt seem so monumental as to have come from a very distant past and at the same time so vital as to have been alive only yesterday.” ( The New York Times ) “Engrossing . . . No Ordinary Time is no ordinary book. . . . An ambitiously conceived and imaginatively executed participant’s eye view of the United States in the war years. . . . The sheer abundance of colorful biographical anecdotes and the cumulative weight of telling detail sustain an atmosphere of immediacy and leave a lastingly vivid impression.” ( The New York Times Book Review ) “The Roosevelt marriage is endlessly gripping because it was so consequential. . . . The reader feels like a resident in the White House.” ( The Boston Globe ) “A tale rendered nearly seamless by Goodwin’s skills as a reporter and writer and by the immense entanglement of her subjects’ private and public lives. How their talents insecurities and demons impacted on the country and the world will be much better understood with the publication of this remarkable book.” ( Chicago Sun-Times ) “A thoroughly terrific and important work a valuable addition to Roosevelt literature. . . . Goodwin has deftly reminded us just how extraordinary FDR and Eleanor were in ‘no ordinary times.’” ( San Francisco Chronicle ) See all Product Description
