Another Astute Reader Notices Things that Robert Caro Overlooked . . .

“Robert Caro’s Blind Spot”

Why does the exhaustive biographer overlook Lyndon Johnson’s virulent misogyny?

Writing in Slate Magazine, Joshua Kendall notes that, in addition to those items I’ve referenced, Mr. Caro has left out a lot of material related to LBJ’s treatment of women. Interesting about the response he received from Mary Margaret Wiley when he attempted to talk to her about that point.
