El reconocido periodista Evan Osnos, ganador de los premios Pulitzer y National Book Award, combina su minuciosa investigación con el tono íntimo de las entrevistas que sostuvo con Joe Biden en varias ocasiones. Osnos logra revelar los matices del personaje a través de más de un centenar de conversaciones con figuras como Barack Obama y miembros de la familia Biden, activistas y oponentes ideológicos. Esta biografía ilumina la vida personal del hombre que perdió a su familia en un accidente automovilístico, a la vez que muestra una admirable trayectoria política: su carrera en el Senado, sus ocho años como vicepresidente de Estados Unidos en el gobierno de Obama y su decisión de postularse a la presidencia por el Partido Demócrata. El retrato más completo y brillante del hombre con el poder de frenar a Trump.
The New Yorker Former vice president Joseph R. Biden Jr. has been called both the luckiest man and the unluckiest--fortunate to have sustained a fifty-year political career that reached the White House, but also marked by deep personal losses and disappointments that he has suffered. Yet even as Biden's life has been shaped by drama, it has also been powered by a willingness, rare at the top ranks of politics, to confront his shortcomings, errors, and reversals of fortune. As he says, "Failure at some point in your life is inevitable, but giving up is unforgivable. "His trials have forged in him a deep empathy for others in hardship--an essential quality as he addresses Americans in the nation's most dire hour in decades. Blending up-close journalism and broader context, Evan Osnos, who won the National Book Award in 2014, draws on his work for The New Yorker This portrayal illuminates Biden's long and eventful career in the Senate, his eight years as Obama's vice president, his sojourn in the political wilderness after being passed over for Hillary Clinton in 2016, his decision to challenge Donald Trump for the presidency, and his choice of Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate. Osnos ponders the difficulties Biden will face if elected and weighs how political circumstances, and changes in the candidate's thinking, have altered his positions. In this nuanced portrait, Biden emerges as flawed, yet resolute, and tempered by the flame of tragedy--a man who just may be uncannily suited for his moment in history.
