"A sensitive, informed and funny feat of high journalism that is a classic of the kind."-The New York Times Book Review Wallace is a classic portrait of one of the century's most fiery and controversial political figures. Initially conceived as a novel, Marshall Frady's biography of George Wallace retains the narrative force and descriptive powers of fiction. Elizabeth Hardwick noted on Wallace's first publication in 1968, "There is a palpable Faulknerian mood to the reporting," and The New Republic observed, "Frady has established new standards in political biography." This is a wonderfully crafted depiction of a seminal figure whose influence altered the course of national politics.
