book content

KING: A LIFE is the first full biography to include recently declassified FBI files. This  revelatory new portrait of the man who shook the world views the reasons why he demanded peaceful protests but was never at peace with himself. We have the unique opportunity to follow this brilliant student from the classroom to the pulpit and understand his life as a husband and father. So many of the issues carefully explained in what critics have called a "landmark" book, are still relevant today.

THIS COPY was hand signed by Jonathan Eig on the title page at our event in Birmingham. It is a new, unread first edition/first printing hardback opened only for signing and comes with a certificate authenticating the signature. **IMPORTANT NOTE** THE PUBLISHER USED A FRAGILE GRAY BINDING THAT CAUSED SMALL TEARS AT THE HEAD AND FOOT OF THE SPINE WHEN SHIPPED. WITHOUT EXCEPTION, EVERY COPY HAS SLIGHT DAMAGE. THE JACKET IS PERFECT AND UNLESS REMOVED, OF COURSE THE BOOK APPEARS FINE.  BECAUSE OF THE FLAW, WE ARE PRICING THESE TREASURES WELL BELOW MARKET!!   Published in May, 2023 by Farrar, Strauss and Giroux, an imprint of Macmillan Publishers.
