Joseph J. Ellis is a bestselling author and distinguished chronicler of early American history. His book, American Sphinx: The Character of Thomas Jefferson, won the 1997 National Book Award, and in 2001 Ellis earned the Pulitzer Prize for History for his illuminating study of the intertwined lives of the founders of the American Republic, Founding Brothers: The Revolutionary Generation. A depiction of the Adams marriage that is part biography, part love story, and part political history, Ellis's new book, First Family, follows John and Abigail from before the Revolution through to John Adams's election to the presidency.
