John Taliaferro spoke about his book, All the Great Prizes, at Politics & Prose on Friday, June 28, 2013.

The range of John Hay’s remarkable life considered by Taliaferro’s biography covers the statesman’s tenure as Lincoln’s private secretary to his years as Secretary of State under presidents McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt. Hay (1838-1905) also knew Gilded Age figures such as Mark Twain and Horace Greeley, and in his personal life he vied with Henry Adams for the romantic attentions of one Madame X, a Washington society hostess.
