Grant Speaks

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his mock-autobiography, the "real" Ulysses S. Grant reveals the staggering truth behind the Civil War, including his secret identity. Showing why he earned the titles "Savior of the Union" and "Most Infamous Drunk in U.S. Military History", Grant embarks here on a hilariously self-deprecating tour of duty. Whether putting Generals Burnside, Hooker, and Robert E. Lee in their place, speculating on Lincoln's assassination, or listening to foulmouthed General Sherman wax poetic on his various gunshot wounds, Grant offers an amusingly warped perspective on the Civil War — and a surprisingly poignant view of 19th century America.

Synopsis:

In "Grant Speaks", Ev Ehrlich takes history apart and reassembles it, superimposing his own premise over chronicled events. Here is Grant, his mad blood brother Sherman, and all the other figures of Grant's time, from Lincoln to Lee to Custer, each shown no mercy. Grant's tell-all is hilarious and deeply affecting, an inspired mixture of fact and fiction that fills in the blanks of history with richness, color, humanity, and, ultimately, truth.
