What made the experience of listening to John C. Calhoun: American Portrait the most enjoyable?
I knew little of John C. Calhoun and only had a superficial understanding of the old deep antebellum South apart from the lone issue of slavery. I found the subject extremely interesting and exotic. This is an excellent personal and cultural history. The writing style, which at first strikes one as archaic, takes on a life and character of its own and adds greatly to the experience. One of the finest political biographies I have encountered in years.

Would you consider the audio edition of John C. Calhoun: American Portrait to be better than the print version?
Who was your favorite character and why?
What does Charlton Griffin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The last chapter.
Any additional comments?
This is a masterpiece. It is a shame Calhoun has been forgotten (deliberately) by mainstream American culture. He embodied true and authentic American character - something you rarely see in government anymore.
