About the Author

Edmund Morris was born and educated in Kenya and went to college in South Africa. He worked as an advertising copywriter in London before immigrating to the United States in 1968. His first book, The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt, won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award in 1980. Its sequel, Theodore Rex, won the Los Angeles Times Award for Biography in 2002. In between these two books, Morris became President Reagan's authorized biographer, and published the national bestseller Dutch: A Memoir of Ronald Reagan. More recently he has written Beethoven: The Universal Composer. Edmund Morris lives in New York City and Kent, Connecticut, with his wife and fellow biographer, Sylvia Jukes Morris.

Reviews

"Monumental . . . Morris is a stylish storyteller with an irresistible subject."--The New York Times Book Review

"Colonel Roosevelt is compelling reading, and [Edmund] Morris is a brilliant biographer who practices his art at the highest level. . . . The writing is vivid in its restraint, powerful in its precision and shapely in its structure and vision. Morris has a way of making aspects of Roosevelt's life and values relevant in both dark and bright ways. A moving, beautifully rendered account of Roosevelt's near-death by assassination during the campaign of 1912 resonated for this reader with all the emotion of the assassinations of our recent history."--Fred Kaplan, The Washington Post

"Hair-raising . . . awe-inspiring . . . a worthy close to a trilogy sure to be regarded as one of the best studies not just of any president, but of any American."--San Francisco Chronicle

"Reading Edmund Morris on Theodore Roosevelt is like listening to Yo-Yo Ma play Bach: you know from the first note you're in inspired hands."--The Washingtonian

"[A] splendid and indispensable study of America's twenty-sixth president . . . Morris is a superb chronicler of Roosevelt's busy, peripatetic life. . . . Abraham Lincoln may embody America's soul, but Theodore Roosevelt has America's heart."--Chicago Tribune Praise for the classic biographies of Edmund Morris The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize "One of those rare works that is both definitive for the period it covers and fascinating to read for sheer entertainment."--The New York Times Book Review "A towering biography."--Time Theodore Rex
Winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Biography "A masterpiece . . . A great president has finally found a great biographer."--The Washington Post "As a literary work on Theodore Roosevelt, it is unlikely ever to be surpassed. It is one of the great histories of the American presidency, worthy of being on a shelf alongside Henry Adams's volumes on Jefferson and Madison."--Times Literary Supplement "Magnificent . . . a compulsively readable, beautifully measured and paced account."--Chicago Tribune
