Eleanor

David Michaelis

2020

This is David Michaelis' portrait of Eleanor Roosevelt, an orphaned niece of President Theodore Roosevelt, and America’s longest-serving First Lady. Long seen as an avatar of democracy, activist, and humanitarian, Eleanor Roosevelt was one of the world’s most widely admired and influential women. In the first single-volume cradle-to-grave portrait in six decades, Michaelis shows how Roosevelt converted her Gilded Age childhood of denial and secrecy into a marriage with her fifth cousin Franklin.
