Description
Politician, scientist, spy, libertine—Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford was all these things and more, but his support for the British during the American Revolution cost him his immortality. In this historical novel by the author of The Countess of Stanlein Restored and editor of Lastingness, the Count is exiled from America, retreating to the royal courts of Europe to find fame, romance, and ultimately failure. Using letters and essays written by the Count himself, Nicholas Delbanco brings back to life this forgotten peer of Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson.

"Once in a while you sense that a novelist has found the subject, character, time, and place he was born to write about. Delbanco’s The Count of Concord is that kind of book. He’s brought his entire array of amazing gifts into play and has written a wonderfully sad, funny, bawdy, and intellectually adventurous novel."—Russell Banks
