In November 2014, 13 members of the Biden family gathered on Nantucket for Thanksgiving, a tradition they had been celebrating for the past 40 years; it was the one constant in what had become a hectic, scrutinized, and overscheduled life. The Thanksgiving holiday was a much-needed respite, a time to connect, a time to reflect on what the year had brought, and what the future might hold. But this year felt different from all those that had come before.

There are about 5 times in the book where someone who isn’t Joe Biden tries to read as Biden. It’s weird. Not ‘Don’t-buy-it-weird’, just weird.
