In Madison's Cave, an epistolary dialogue between Thomas Jefferson and John Adams by Douglas Anderson will officially launch on September 14th. You can pre-order your copy now, at 20% off the list price.
In a series of chapters that mimic those of his infamous book, Notes on the State of Virginia, Jefferson ushers Adams into the underworld of the human psyche, filled with both its monsters and its redemptive lessons. This experimental novel considers early American history, government & politics, education, race relations, and other themes that still resonate in modern American life.
Douglas Anderson was educated at Oberlin College and the University of Virginia. He was the Sterling-Goodman Professor of English at the University of Georgia, and has published a number of critical studies in American literature. He currently resides in Portland, OR.
