“It is impossible to read George Packerâ€s new biography of Richard Holbrooke without a piercing

sense of melancholy, not only that a man so supremely alive should be dead, but also because such

people—Our Man, in Packerâ€s title, the incarnation of vanished glory, imperial hubris, exceptional

Americanism—no longer walk the earth… Extraordinary.―—James Traub, Foreign Policy “You

may ask yourself, is it worth one of the best American non-fiction writers producing a book of just under

600 pages on an arrogant and abrasive egotist whose highest sustained rank in the State Department was that

of a lowly assistant secretary? The answer is unabashedly yes. This is a remarkable work about a

remarkable, if deeply flawed, statesman whose career was intimately intertwined with the 50 years of

American decline from Vietnam to Afghanistan.―—Jonathan Powell, The Spectator“[A] magisterial

tome, a blend of biography and diplomatic history on par with Steve Collâ€s Ghost Wars or Neil

Sheehanâ€s A Bright Shining Lie… you really should read this book if youâ€re at all interested in the

decline of our countryâ€s elites or Americaâ€s role in the world over the past 50 years.― —Fred

Kaplan, Slate  “Packer's energetic prose… carries the reader easily through the three main acts of

Holbrooke's diplomatic life… impeccably sourced.― —Paddy Hirsch, NPR“Mesmerizing… An elegy

not just for Holbrooke but for the vision of American power he represented… Insightful and beautifully

written…― —Barbara Spindel, The Christian Science Monitor'No book could achieve the intensity,

completeness, and narrative depth of Our Man without the authorâ€s belief that he had been put on

this earth to do it. The strength of the book is its focus on Holbrookeâ€s character, which Packer pursues

much as James Boswell pursued the human truth of Samuel Johnson. The point is not to analyze

things—why Yugoslavia flew to pieces, or what Johnson did for the English language with his dictionary.

The point is to winkle out and bring to light the whole truth of the man: what he was like in all his

contradictions.' —Thomas Powers, The New York Review of Books “Our Man is a great,

exuberant read, gossipy and thoughtful.―—Roger Boyes, The Times'[S]prawling, mesmerizing…'—Max

Boot, The Washington PostThis unconventional biography, written like a novel without notes or index, is a

joy to read. The book is a singular achievement, bringing alive the last decades when America counted

characters such as Holbrooke in the halls of policy-making... Packer ma[kes] Holbrookeâ€s life a

metaphor for brash, ambitious America.—Nayan Chanda, Global Asia'Captaivating... Packer is a

masterful storyteller and wordsmith.'—Hussein Ibish, The World News'This book is a real

accomplishment; itâ€s hands down the best biography I have read this year... Deeply researched and

reported... Brilliant, ambitious, arrogant and committed, Holbrooke, who died suddenly in 2010, is a

mesmerizing subject, and friends and enemies alike helped Packer craft this biography. Sure to win a prize

(or two or three) in the 2019 literary-awards sweepstakes.'—Mary Ann Gwin, The Seattle

Times“Outstanding…One of the most fascinating dissections of US power – its strengths and serious

weaknesses – Iâ€ve ever read.― —Steve Bloomfield, The Guardian  “In Our Man, George

Packer has delivered a deeply affecting and ultimately tragic biography of a distinguished diplomat….

Packer brilliantly describes Holbrookeâ€s personal journey through each episode, exploring along the way

how these wars came to shape him — and how Holbrooke applied his considerable guile, fortitude and

intelligence to shape the course of the conflicts.―—Kurt Campbell, The Financial Times  “Best

appreciated like a novel, consumed whole…charming, brilliant, cocksure.―—Jennifer Szalai, The New

York Times GEORGE PACKER is a staff writer at The Atlantic and the author of The Unwinding: An Inner

History of the New America, which was a New York Times best seller and winner of the 2013 National

Book Award. His other nonfiction books include The Assassins' Gate: America in Iraq, a finalist for the

2006 Pulitzer Prize, and Blood of the Liberals, winner of the 2001 Robert F. Kennedy Book Award. He is

also the author of two novels and a play, Betrayed, winner of the 2008 Lucille Lortel Award, and the editor

of a two-volume edition of the essays of George Orwell. See all Editorial Reviews
