“By restoring Jane so vividly to the historical record, Lepore provides a fresh, personal perspective on Benjamin.  And so extraordinarily demanding was her research, even the appendixes in Lepore’s vibrantly enlightening biography are dramatic...Lepore’s stature grows with each book, and this first telling of a remarkable American story, supported by a national tour and generous print run, is destined for an even greater readership.”
