Thomas Jefferson's personal life has always been a puzzle to biographers. Even his contemporaries found him difficult to know. In Jefferson's correspondence, however, Andrew Burstein has found a key to the inner man. This penetrating and thoughtful portait confronts widespread misunderstandings about Jefferson's romantic life and provides insight into the contradictions that still surround our third president.

About the Author:

Andrew Burstein served as a consultant and appears as prominent commentator in Ken Burns's television biography Thomas Jefferson. He has taught Jefferson's life and legacy at the University of Virginia and Mount Holyoke College. He is currently Assistant Professor of History at the University of Northern Iowa.

From Publishers Weekly:

Burstein, an independent scholar who has taught and written extensively on early American history, has fashioned a book that should attract a wide readership. Making particular use of Jefferson's letters, Burstein attempts to reveal the inner man who few contemporaries felt they knew well. The author has a sure grasp of the material and a prudent awareness that Jefferson was a person of his times?not of ours. Jefferson possessed inconsistencies and contradictions, though Burstein goes a little overboard in finding opposites in everything he did. According to Burstein, Jefferson was rational and emotional, forthright and shy, compassionate and vengeful, ordinary and extraordinary. Nonetheless, one finishes this book with a renewed awareness of the profound sensibilities and talents of this complicated individual and a deeper understanding of the importance to him of his wide circle of close friends.
