About the Author

Hunter Biden is a lawyer and an artist. A graduate of Georgetown University and Yale Law School, Hunter has worked as an advocate on behalf of Jesuit universities, and served on numerous corporate and nonprofit boards, including as vice chairman of Amtrak and chairman of the board of World Food Program USA. The son of Joe and Jill Biden, Hunter is the father of three daughters: Naomi, Finnegan, and Maisy. He lives with his wife, Melissa Cohen Biden, and their son, Beau, in California.


'A beautiful book by Biden. It is a sharply written account of what it is like to be at the same time enormously privileged and utterly wretched.'
*The Times*

'Beautiful Things is so concise, so unflinching and propulsive, that outside of turning the pages and occasionally picking my jaw off the ground, I didn’t move between the first page and the last.'
*Dave Eggers*

'Hunter writes honestly and with courage about the collapse of his marriage, hurting his father, squandering cash and going on a “crack-fuelled, cross-country odyssey."' 
*Sunday Telegraph*

'With disarming humility, Hunter’s unflinching account lays bare both the sustaining power and hard limits of love and family.'
*Bill Clegg*

'Mesmerising. A sizzling mess of grief, addiction, self-justification and misdirection. It’s admirable – and also abominable.’
*Sunday Times*

'Hunter Biden writes beautifully of almost unsurvivable loss, and the amazing grace of family love. He writes of his savage alcoholism and addiction with rare honesty, of his recovery with stunned gratitude, of broken hearts, resurrection, beautiful things.’
*Anne Lamott*

‘Devastating loss, an all-consuming crack addiction and what he really thinks of his father Joe – Hunter Biden doesn’t hold back.’
*Evening Standard*

'Biden transforms the Hollywood hills into a gothic wilderness, a suburb of hell where coyotes howl and nocturnal birds screech maledictions.’

‘A moving addiction memoir in its reflections on pain and grief, both poignant and sad.’
*New Statesman*
