Eleanor Roosevelt wrote her hugely popular syndicated column My Day for over a quarter of that century, from 1936 to 1962. This collection brings together the most memorable of those columns, written with singular wit, elegance, compassion, and insight—everything from her personal perspectives on the New Deal and World War II to the painstaking diplomacy required of her as chair of the United Nations Committee on Human Rights after the war to the joys of gardening at her beloved Hyde Park home.
