This biography of the 18th president of the United States by the novelist Louis Auchincloss emphasizes not only Wilson's troubled administration but his difficult relationships--personal as well as political. Wilson's arrogance is balanced by his moral rigor and utopian vision in this probing examination of a complicated man. A New York Times Notable Book for 2000.
Author Bio
Louis Auchincloss
Raised in New York City, Louis Auchincloss was connected with many prominent families in the upper-class milieu in which his novels are set. (He was related to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis by marriage.) Auchincloss went to Yale and the University of Virginia Law School, married in 1957, and had three sons. He served in World War II in intelligence and as a naval commander. For most of his adult life, in addition to writing novels, Auchincloss practiced law in New York. He is regarded as the primary fictional chronicler of a certain way of life--of the genteel, hyper-civilized, securely wealthy world that was written about, before him, by Edith Wharton, whom he considered one of his major inspirations as a writer. Auchincloss died at the age of 92 from complications of a stroke.


Kirkus Reviews
"Fleet narrative and clear-eyed psychology....[T]his taut, fair presentation leaves the reader entertained by an informed storyteller, and informed by an entertaining historian." 03/01/2000

New York Review of Books
"It takes a novelist's sensibility to probe the conflicting currents of this complex character and to show how they affected his actions. No one is better equipped for this task than Louis Auchincloss, our most discerning analyst of the world of power and privilege....Concise, sensitive, and discerning, WOODROW WILSON is an illuminating portrait." - Ronald Steel 10/05/2000
