From the Publisher
A brilliant marriage of imagination and fact, a sweeping historical novel that brings our first president and his contemporaries to such vivid life that they seem to have walked out streets only yesterday. This is a wonderfully entertaining and thoroughly terrific book
A brisk, engaging, and far from worshipful portrait… [Martin] enlivens the novel with ribald humor and even some graphic sex scenes, humanizing Washington and delivering an entertaining slice of history.
"The action is hair-raising… Martin brings the myth down to earth without destroying the man… It's almost an insult to call Citizen Washington fiction, since so many histories, past and present, and been far more biased, pro and con. This fiction is so complex in its understanding of humanity to seem actually true."
"A strongly satisfying, eminently readable saga… Compelling biographical fiction."
