Jusserand, the French Ambassador to the United States during the turbulent years of World War One, reveals his life and career in this remarkable memoir.

His reminiscences begin in his childhood in Lyon and end abruptly with his death, at the age of 77 in Paris.Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and a renowned diplomat involved in the Treaty of Versailles, his career is nothing short of exceptional, but Jusserand’s memoir also focuses on his own personal relationships, the fabulous dinner parties with writers, artists and fellow diplomats, his marriage to Eliza Richards, an American he met in Washington and, of course his friendship with the then-President Theodore Roosevolt.A confidante of Theodore Roosevelt, his book discusses his time spent with the president, resulting in humorous anecdotes and a revealing portrait of the 26th President of the United States.Although focusing mainly on his career as an ambassador, Jusserand also discusses the writing that earned him the Pulitzer Prize and the writers that inspired him to greatness.It is a great book for anyone wishing to learn more about Jusserand, his fascinating career and the role he played in ensuring diplomacy between nations.Jean Adrien Antoine Jules Jusserand (18 February 1855 – 18 July 1932) was a French author and diplomat.
