HIS MASTERLY PEN A Biography of Jefferson the Writer

by | Read by Mark Bramhall

Biography & Memoir • 24 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Mark Bramhall uses a soft Piedmont accent to differentiate Thomas Jefferson's words from the rest of the text in this audio version of master biographer Fred Kaplan's latest work. Jefferson was one of our best presidential writers, possibly the very best, so a biography based on his writing life is long overdue. Bramhall captures both the passion and the cool reason in works ranging from the Declaration of Independence through his political arguments and his voluminous correspondence. Kaplan, while he clearly admires Jefferson, never lets us forget his humanity, including how he was trapped financially and ideologically by his inherited position. Bramhall's voice is easy to listen to and leads us through the considerable complexities of Jefferson's life. D.M.H. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2023]
