Tom Reiss - The Black Count


Tom Reiss presents The Black Count: Glory, Revolution, Betrayal, and the Real Count of Monte Cristo ($27.00). With his critically acclaimed international bestseller The Orientalist, author Tom Reiss proved himself to be not only a supremely talented writer, but also a historical sleuth of the first order. Now, Reiss has surpassed himself, delivering a thrilling, sweeping narrative that introduces readers to one of history’s greatest forgotten heroes: Alex Dumas. Drawing on more than six years of personal research—which included inspecting dungeon cells and even cracking open a safe to recover every piece of the puzzle—Reiss masterfully recounts the epic story of an outsized figure whose daring, courage, and sheer intellectual and athletic prowess formed the very model for the modern-day action hero.

Tom Reiss is the author of the celebrated international bestseller The Orientalist. He has written for The New Yorker, the Wall Street Journal, and the New York Times Book Review, among other publications. He lives with his wife and daughters in New York City.
