This is one of the greatest short pieces of non fiction memoir of its kind. And the fact that is is in Robert Caro's own voice makes it even more moving. It is part Robert Caro's first person memoir (and his long suffering wife Ina too) as well as the story of the inimitable dogged storytelling and reporting that has won him multiple Pulitzer Prizes. It is also a testament to his humanity and his reasons as to why he has spent a lifetime focused on these two biographical subjects because it is not just about power for its own sake but also because it is about power's effect on the powerless.
