The General and Julia
by John Clinch
In this epic and intimate novel, Ulysses S. Grant reflects on the crucial moments of his life as a husband, a father, a general, and a president while writing his memoirs and reckoning with his complicated legacy. Moving from blood-stained battlefields to Gilded Age New York, we follow Grant as his views on race and Reconstruction changed over time. Author Jon Clinch breathes fresh life into an American icon in another work of “must-read modern literature” (Charles Frazier, New York Times bestselling author).
