New York, NY: Simon and Schuster, 2020. First Edition. Hardcover. “Eleanor Roosevelt was America’s longest-serving First Lady, her husband’s indispensable surrogate during his governorship and presidency, a humanitarian, activist, and after FDR’s death, a diplomat. She remains one of the most influential and widely admired American women. Eleanor’s life was a remarkable story of transformation.” (from front flap) Broken into five distinct eras of the First Lady’s life (Granny, Orphan, Missus, State-Woman, & Mrs. Roosevelt), David Michaelis (b. 1957) has penned the most comprehensive biography of Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962), “drawing on new research…the first cradle-to-grave, single volume biography of this major American figure in decades,” according to the front flap. Digging into the core of how Eleanor became one of the most admired women in modern American history, Michaelis goes into details on her personal strife and relationships that were largely kept from public knowledge. The public narrative was far from the full truth in the era of newspapers, magazines, and very early television. Discover the details and connect the dots between familiar stories as you dive into an ordinary life turned extraordinary. From the collection of Barbara (1935-2023) & Irving (1933-2018) Nusbaum - world travelers, connoisseurs, eminent collectors of art & books, and the dearly beloved late parents of our esteemed founder, Arthur S. Nusbaum. In fact, in her early years, Barbara met and shook hands with Mrs. Roosevelt at an event having been a long-time admirer of the First Lady.
