"An intimate portrait ofLincoln, so well-drawn that he seems to come alive on the page."
--Charleston Post & Courier

Lincoln's Men by Daniel Mark Epstein offers a fascinating close-up view of the Abraham Lincoln White House through the eyes ofLincoln's three personal secretaries: John Nicolay, William Stoddard, and John Hay. Like Doris Kearns Goodwin's monumental New York Times bestseller, Team of Rivals, Epstein's Lincoln's Men sheds a new light on the 16th U.S. president--his brilliance and vision in a time of national turmoil and Civil War--by focusing on his relationships with the men who worked closely by his side. USA Today writes, "This is not your typical work of history. Epstein, a poet, employs a dreamy, novelistic tone in describing these young men and their tormented boss."
