Join us in person at the Northshire Bookstore in Manchester Center , VT on December 1 at 6pm for an event featuring acclaimed author Jon Clinch as we celebrate the release of his newest novel The General and Julia . In this work of historical fiction , Ulysses S . Grant reflects on the crucial moments of his life as a husband , a father , a general , and a president while writing his memoirs and reckoning with his complicated legacy . In this gorgeously rendered and moving novel , Grant rises from the page in all of his contradictions and foibles , his failures and triumphs . Moving from blood-stained battlefields to Gilded Age New York , the novel explores how Grant ’ s own views on race and Reconstruction changed over time . Another work of “ must-read modern literature ” ( Charles Frazier , New York Times bestselling author ) from historical fiction master Jon Clinch , this evocatively crafted novel breathes fresh life into an American icon .
