The Five of Hearts An Intimate Portrait of Henry Adams and His Friends, 1880-1918

Review :

An incredibly insightful and fascinating look at the luminaries that populated literature, history, and politics in the late 19th century. Adams is presented as a conflicted man, half trudging towards modernity whilst keeping his feet, head, and heart in the past of a more simple time. O'Toole's copious and deep research shines in this book.
