Caro, Robert A
Insights and Recollections by Robert Caro
Hailed as "one of the great reporters of our time and probably the greatest biographer" by The Sunday Times (London), Robert Caro, the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning author, shares a riveting collection of reflections on the research and writing of his renowned books.
Now available in paperback, Caro offers an intimate look at the processes behind The Power Broker and The Years of Lyndon Johnson. From interviewing formidable figures like Robert Moses to sifting through the expansive archives of the LBJ Library, Caro takes readers on a journey through the highs and lows of a writer's life.
With evocative prose, he recounts the poignant stories of those affected by Moses' infrastructure projects and shares personal anecdotes about Lady Bird Johnson. Caro's narrative extends beyond the subjects of his biographies, exploring the communities and experiences that have shaped his writing philosophy and method.
These personal pieces, some published and others penned specifically for this book, coalesce into a portrait of a historian deeply committed to bringing stories to life with integrity, passion, and a masterful touch.
