    William Taubman who did a biography of Khruschev in 2003 is coming out with a biography of Gorbachev in September.

    • Thanks for the tip – I recently added Taubman’s bio of Khrushchev to my “Related Reading” page on my sister website about presidential biographies. From what I gathered, that biography is excellent, so I can’t wait to see how he does with Gorbachev!

    David Levering Lewis is doing a biography of Wendell Willkie to be released on May 1, 2018.

    • Thanks – I wanted to add Wendell Willkie to my “www.bestpresidentialbios.com” related-reading list but I seem to remember coming up short on compelling bios of him. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that Lewis’s biography is worth a read-
