I Am Abraham

A Novel of Lincoln and the Civil War
Written by Jerome Charyn | Narrated by Arthur Morey
“A fictional autobiography that rings emotionally true” (Publishers Weekly): The triumphs and trials of Abraham Lincoln’s life and presidency are vividly reconstructed in this spellbinding historical novel that portrays the 16th president in all his complexity. From an author who Michael Chabon calls “one of the most important writers in American literature.”

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

Tracing the historic arc of Abraham Lincoln’s life from his picaresque days as a gangly young man in Sangamon County, Illinois, through his improbable marriage to Kentucky belle Mary Todd, to his 1865 visit to war-shattered Richmond only days before his assassination, I Am Abraham hews to the familiar Lincoln saga, seamlessly braiding Lincoln family members and military figures with a parade of fictional extras - wise-cracking knaves, conniving hangers-on, patriotic whores, and dying soldiers. Using biblically cadenced prose, cornpone nineteenth-century humor, and Lincoln’s own letters and speeches, Jerome Charyn concocts a profoundly moral but troubled commander in chief, whose relationship with his Ophelia-like wife and sons - Robert, Willie, and Tad - is explored with penetrating psychological insight, utmost compassion, and the most ingenious novelistic license.
