Description
(Winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Biography or Autobiography) The result of ten years' travel and research, this book from the author of Führer-Ex: Memoirs of a Former Neo-Nazi and the Samuel Johnson Prize finalist The Orientalist is a sweeping, stunningly rich portrait of General Thomas-Alexandre Dumas, the mixed-race father of Alexandre Dumas and the real-life inspiration for his Count of Monte Christo. General Dumas was in fact as dashing and remarkable a figure as any swashbuckling hero. Born into slavery on a French Haitian plantation in 1762, Dumas accompanied his aristocratic father back to France, where he was educated as a nobleman's son and entered the military. Within seven years he had risen to become the first black general-in-chief in French history—the highest-ranking person of color ever to serve in any continental European army—yet his outstanding career is all but unknown today, having been expunged by his bitter and jealous rival Napoleon. Tom Reiss dramatically and conclusively restores General Dumas to his rightful pinnacle in French history, set against revolutions in France and Haiti and the rise of Napoleon.
