    Abraham Lincoln trusted and confided in his law partner William "Billy" Herndon, but his still-influential 1889 biography was censored by his collaborator and publisher. In Lincoln's Billy, Tom LeClair imagines Herndon's deathbed autobiography and the "real life" of his partner, revealing secrets about a randy and "rasslin'" Lincoln on his youthful trips to New Orleans, the hidden sources of his depression, and the untold cause of his hatred of slavery.
