In this biographical sketch, Roy Blount, Jr., delves into the honor and character of this icon of the Confederate secession and the Civil War. The unlikely author is known mostly as a Southern humorist, and in this writing he explores both the deep-rooted Southernism and the subtle humor of Lee. Michael Prichard provides a clean, uncluttered narration, just hinting at Lee's contradictory, sentimental, and macho personas. Prichard's work is characteristically top-notch, but his flat, neutral tones seem an odd choice for the life story of such a significantly Southern man. N.M.C.
