Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow...the world was wide enough for Hamilton and me. -Burr
This book is utterly exhaustive in its scope. Dry and dull in a few places, exhilarating and taut and heartbreaking in others. This feels like a life done justice, although I am also curious about the biography that Eliza started and her son finished after she was gone. I loved the framing with Eliza in the prologue and epilogue. Loved piecing together where the book and musical met, loved the bits where they diverged. Loved stumbling upon the actual historical lines from letters and writings that made it into the musicals brilliant score. Shout out to Scott Brick for bringing this book to life for my ears the way few could.
I am so tired. It is so long. I want to see Hamilton. -Eliza
