David McCullough has been called "a master of the art of narrative history." His books have been praised for their exceptional narrative sweep, their scholarship and insight into American life, and for their literary distinction. In the words of the citation accompanying his honorary degree from Yale, "As an historian, he paints with words, giving us pictures of the American people that live, breath, and above all, confront the fundamental issues of courage, achievement and moral character."
His latest book, the monumental John
Adams, is one of the most popular and critical triumphs of our time. A number one New York Times
bestseller, now in its 34th printing, John Adams has to date sold more than 1,500,000 copies in hard cover and is the winner of this year's Pulitzer Prize for biography. For his previous biography,
Truman, published in 1992, David McCullough also received the Pulitzer Prize.
In addition to two Pulitzer Prizes, David McCullough has won the National Book Award twice and the prestigious Francis Parkman twice. He has been honored with the National Humanities Medal, the St. Louis Literary Award and the New York Public Library's Literary Lion Award.
His other books include The Johnstown Flood, The Great Bridge, The Path Between the Seas, Mornings on Horseback
and Brave Companions. As may be said of few writers, none of his books has ever been out of print.
In a crowded, productive career, David McCullough has been an editor, teacher, lecturer and familiar presence on public television, as host of
Smithsonian World, The American Experience and narrator of numerous documentaries, including
"The Civil War."
A gifted speaker, he has lectured in all parts of the country
and abroad, as well as at the White House. He is also one of the few private citizens ever asked to speak before a joint session of Congress.
Born in Pittsburgh in 1933, David McCullough was educated there and at Yale, where he graduated with honors in English literature. He and his wife, Rosalee Barnes McCullough live in West Tisbury, Massachusetts.
