Praise

“What is it about this mother-fixated, death-obsessed, overly competitive insomniac…that continues to fascinate us?…What [Ruth Brandon] found was a man with a gift for self-promotion equaling that of Madonna’s.”
—USA Today

“Elegant…[Brandon reveals] the surprising charisma of the man whose name has, for more than a century, evoked wonder.”
—The Boston Globe


“Superb…Brandon is a shrewd and incisive biographer.”
—John Banville, Los Angeles Times Book Review
