My full-length review of Franklin and Lucy has been published in the June edition of the Internet Review of Books. Most exciting. Here is the first paragraph from the review (longer than my blog review): In this age of kiss-and-tattle, when a politician’s every peccadillo is the stuff of instant CNN montage coverage and YouTube parodies, the idea that FDR could carry on a series of extra-marital affairs and intimate relationships without a peep from the press seems not just nostalgically quaint but astounding. But Joseph Persico avoids the temptation of writing a retroactive tell-all, aiming for a broader examination of this incredible President’s personal life.
