September 1, 2020

A full biog­ra­phy of Pres­i­dent Jim­my Carter, focus­ing on his one-term pres­i­den­cy. Draw­ing on inter­views with Carter and mem­bers of his admin­is­tra­tion and recent­ly declas­si­fied doc­u­ments, Pulitzer Prize-win­ning biog­ra­ph­er Kai Bird deliv­ers a pro­found, clear-eyed eval­u­a­tion of a leader whose lega­cy has been deeply mis­un­der­stood. The Out­lier is the defin­i­tive account of an enig­mat­ic pres­i­den­cy‚ both as it real­ly hap­pened and as it is remem­bered in the Amer­i­can consciousness.
