As a young man Winston Churchill was greatly influenced by Bourke Cockran, a charismatic New York City congressman who was Churchill's widowed mother’s lover and friend. Cockran was a brilliant trial lawyer and adviser to American presidents. He took young Winston under his wing and gave him unusual insights into the politics of the time. It was a particularly important relationship that shaped Churchill’s thinking and political outlook; it also provided a window into the United States that he would take with him all his life. The story is also biographical, told in part as fiction and reproducing for the first time the private correspondence between the two men.
