Larson’s latest book, A Magnificent Catastrophe: The Tumultuous Election of 1800, American First Presidential Campaign, chronicles the election that gave birth to America’s two party system. Published in September, it has received feature reviews in publications as diverse as The New Yorker, Entertainment Weekly, and the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Reviewing the book in the The American Scholar, Jill Ogline wrote, “A Magnificent Catastrophe offers a thoughtful and extended commentary on the gains and losses inherent in partisanship’s triumph.”
