Sinopse

Though written during her exile in England, from which she would not return until her death, Asia Booth Clarke's memoir of her famous brother was not published until 1938. She had given the "locked book" to a friend for keeping "to publish sometime if he sees fit." The friend did not see fit to publish it while Asia, her brother Edwin Booth, or her former husband John Clarke were still alive. So it was left to Eleanor Farjeon to complete the task after the death of her father. This is a unique look at the man who changed the world by assassinating Abraham Lincoln. Long viewed as a demon, fanatic, madman, and narcissist, Asia Clarke's memoir attempts to humanize the man she deeply loved and who was loved by many friends and family members. This fascinating account adds to the complexity and mystery of Booth and his actions. Every memoir of the American Civil War provides us with another view of the catastrophe that changed the country forever. For the first time, this long out-of-print volume is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones.  Be sure to LOOK INSIDE by clicking the cover above or download a sample.
