Description

Robert A. Caro is one of the most acclaimed writers of his generation, whose landmark biographies are widely hailed as masterpieces.

This is the captivating account of his life as a writer, describing the sometimes staggering lengths to which he has gone in order to produce his books and offering priceless insights into the craft of non-fiction writing, be it the pursuit of truth, the writer’s process, the art of interviewing or the creation of literature.

Including several of Caro’s most famous speeches and interviews as well as new material, this is the self-portrait of a man who knows the meaning and importance of great story-telling – and, like all his books, is an utterly riveting example of that too.

Publisher Review

A breathtakingly dramatic story [told] with consummate artistry and ardor ... It showcases Mr Caro's masterly gifts as a writer -- Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times, on The Years of Lyndon Johnson I think about Robert Caro and reading The Power Broker back when I was twenty-two years old and just being mesmerized -- Barack Obama on The Power Broker A stupendous achievement ... Caro's style is gripping, indeed hypnotic, and he squeezes every ounce of drama from his remarkable story -- Vernon Bogdanor, Independent, on The Power Broker Irresistibly readable, an outright masterpiece -- David Sexton, Evening Standard, on The Power Broker One of the greatest non-fiction works ever written -- Bryan Appleyard, Sunday Times, on The Power Broker
