Originally published in 1885 by Mark Twain, Ulysses S. Grant's
landmark memoir has been annotated by Elizabeth Samet in this
lavish edition. No previous edition combines such a sweep of
historical and cultural contexts with the literary authority that
Samet, obsessed with Grant for decades, brings to the table.
Whether exploring novels Grant read at West Point or presenting
majestic images culled from archives, Samet curates a richly
annotated edition. Never has Grant's transformation from tanner's
son to military leader been more insightfully and passionately
explained than in this timely edition, appearing on the 150th
anniversary of Grant's 1868 presidential election.
