Information about the author.
Eleanor Roosevelt is arguably the most important woman in American political history. She polarized people during her life, and as this biography proves, continues to do so to this day.
Cook rescues Roosevelt from her role as long-suffering matron. In her place stands a woman fully realized—evolving, self-directed. Her life celebrated social justice combined with enduring emotional relationships.
“A great story told with verve and charm.” (The New York Times)
