О произведении:
Curtis Roosevelt was three when he and his sister, Eleanor, arrived at the White House soon after their grandfather's inauguration. The country's ''First Grandchildren,'' a pint-sized double act, they were known to the media as ''Sistie and Buzzie.'' In this rich memoir, Roosevelt brings us into ''the goldfish bowl,'' as his family called it - that glare of public scrutiny to which all presidential households must submit. He recounts his misadventures as a hapless kid in an unforgivably formal setting and describes his role as a tiny planet circling the dual suns of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. Blending self-abasement, humor, awe and affection, Too Close to the Sun is an intimate portrait of two of the most influential and inspirational figures in modern American history - and a thoughtful exploration of the emotional impact of growing up in their irresistible aura.
