Much as he did in novels about Abraham Lincoln and Emily Dickinson, Jerome Charyn re-creates the voice of Theodore Roosevelt—the New York City police commissioner, self-appointed soldier, and soon-to-be 26th president—through his derring-do adventures, effortlessly combining superhero dialogue with haunting pathos.
