Rated 5 out of 5 by from one of the top 3 Oates is an excellent writer: concise, prosaic, moving and eloquent. His bio of Martin Luther King, for example, is also a masterpiece. I suppose some will always vouch for Lord Charnwood & I haven't read all of the newer bios of Lincoln. But Oates writes with such force, passion and erudition it is impossible to see who could surpass him. One of the top 3, if not number 1.
