Inhaltsangabe: Thomas Fleming is a distinguished historian and the author of numerous critically acclaimed and bestselling titles. The Officers' Wives was an international bestseller with over 2 million copies sold. Time and Tide and Liberty Tavern were both New York Times bestsellers, and all three books had major book club deals. He is also the author of Liberty! The American Revolution, the companion volume to the six-part PBS mini-series.
Set in the mid-Atlantic states during the turbulent pre-Civil war years, The Wages of Fame traces the lives and choices of Hugh Stapleton's grandson George and his beautiful, willful wife Caroline. While engaged to George, Caroline had an affair with John Sladen, one of his closest friends. Before George could learn of the deception, Sladen left, only to become a powerful force in Louisiana politics. When George wins election as New Jersey's senator, the three are united in Washington. As the Mexican war approaches, passions both old and new surface as ideals collide over the fate of the country.
Über den Autor: "How do you write a book?" 24 year old Thomas Fleming asked bestselling writer Fulton Oursler in 1951. "Write four pages a day," Oursler said. "Every day except Sunday. Whether you feel like it or not. Inspiration consists of putting the seat of your pants on the chair at your desk." Fleming has followed this advice to good effect. His latest effort, "The Intimate Lives of the Founding Fathers," is his 50th published book. Twenty three of them have been novels. He is the only writer in the history of the Book of the Month Club to have main selections in fiction and in nonfiction. Many have won prizes. Recently he received the Burack Prize from Boston University for lifetime achievement. In nonfiction he has specialized in the American Revolution. He sees Intimate Lives as a perfect combination of his double talent as a novelist and historian. "Novelists focus on the imtimate side of life. This is the first time anyone has looked at the intimate side of the lives of these famous Americans, with an historian's eyes." Fleming was born in Jersey City, the son of a powerful local politician. He has had a lifetime interest in American politics. He also wrote a history of West Point which the New York Times called "the best...ever written." Military history is another strong interest. He lives in New York with his wife, Alice Fleming, who is a gifted writer of books for young readers.
