NPR's Robert Siegel talks with John Q. Barrett, editor of That Man: An Insider's Portrait of Franklin D. Roosevelt, by the late Robert H. Jackson. Jackson, one of Roosevelt's close friends and advisors, wrote an intimate memoir about FDR. The manuscript was found in his closet by his son after his death.
