Time is running short to enter to win "When Lions Roar: The Churchills and the Kennedys" as part of the Goodreads promotional contest ending June 22. (Hope all my friends and fans of "Masters of Sex", my last book made into a Showtime series of the same name, like this new book, full action and remarkable characters at crucial time in the 20th Century).
Here some of the recommendations:
"Many great personalities appear to history in cutout. Thomas Maier reminds us that few of them succeed outside an intricate network of public and private relationships, beginning with their families. In weaving together the stories of these two, Maier has made the best sort of collective biography: expansive, intimate, captivating and, evidently, a labor of love." -Ken Weisbrode, author of Churchill and the King: The Wartime Alliance of Winston Churchill and George VI
"A highly enjoyable and expertly-told account of two of the most important political families of the twentieth century." -Richard Toye, author of Churchill's Empire: The World that Made Him and the World He Made"Thomas Maier has achieved the remarkable feat of offering rich new insight into the lives, achievements, and failures of two famous families, the Churchills and the Kennedys. If you think you know everything there is to know about the Churchills and Kennedys, you're wrong. Maier examines his subjects as no biographer has before. It is a monumental accomplishment." -Terry Golway, author of The Irish in America andMachine Made: Tammany Hall and the Creation of Modern American Politics
