An occasional series in which writers speak for themselves.
A former Naval Air reservist, speechwriter, and press secretary, longtime attorney James B. Conroy is also the award-winning author of multiple books, including Our One Common Country: Abraham Lincoln and the Hampton Roads Peace Conference of 1865 and Jefferson’s White House: Monticello on the Potomac. His new work is The Devils Will Get No Rest: FDR, Churchill, and the Plan that Won the War, which Evan Osnos says is a story of “World War II gamesmanship at its most gripping…Conroy writes with panache, wisdom, humor, and razor-sharp precision. He gives the reader a cinematic sense of urgency and realism, with characters that spring to life with brilliant humanity.”
Conroy recently discussed The Devils Will Get No Rest with fellow author/attorney Talmage Boston. Listen to the podcast here.
