Synopsis

On Monday, November 25, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was buried in Arlington. During the stillness of this momentous day, Tristan Tecumseh Hamilton begins a long look back at his life and times, and at the life and times of his neighbor and fellow townsman, President Warren G. Harding, who died mysteriously in San Francisco forty years before. Throughout this final week of November 1963, the assassination and burial of President Kennedy becomes the mirror through which the now aging Tristan views the storied and long-buried past as it rises all around him. Power and love, ambition and loyalty, war and the devotion to home: these universal themes weave through the rich and intricate tapestry of this magisterial American epic that encompasses the world from the vantage of home.
 

About Vincent Nicolosi

See more books from this Author
Born and raised in Marion, Ohio, in the middle decades of the twentieth century, Vincent Nicolosi grew up in an era when Harding lore, like Indian lore, was still in the air. History and legends lingered on—rumors too. These he absorbed from stories told by those who knew and mixed with Warren and Florence Harding, who shook hands with Babe Ruth, dined with Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, exchanged points of view with Henry Ford, and with those who labored to build the town, run the railroads, and construct the steam shovels that dug the Panama Canal. Nicolosi's own life has led him to far-flung places including, years ago, the mountains of northern Nicaragua and to John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City, where he has taught for many years and where he currently serves the students as coordinator of the Writing Center.
