Jon Meacham's 6 favorite books

Jon Meacham is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of American Lion, a biography of Andrew Jackson, and the 2012 best-seller Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power.

One of his six favorite books, as shared with The Week magazine:
Some Sort of Epic Grandeur by Matthew J. Bruccoli

An engrossing, elegant biography of F. Scott Fitzgerald that — forgive the cliché — reads as compellingly as the best of Fitzgerald's own fiction. This is the finest literary life that I have ever encountered.
Read about another entry on the list.
