    ITEM#: 3614129

    Barack Obama is the junior U.S. senator from Illinois. He lives in Chicago with his wife, Michelle, and two daughters.
    Includes the senator's speech from the 2004 Democratic National Convention!

    In this lyrical, unsentimental, and compelling memoir, the son of a black African father and a white American mother searches for a workable meaning to his life as a black American. It begins in New York, where Barack Obama learns that his father—a figure he knows more as a myth than as a man—has been killed in a car accident. This sudden death inspires an emotional odyssey—first to a small town in Kansas, from which he retraces the migration of his mother’s family to Hawaii, and then to Kenya, where he meets the African side of his family, confronts the bitter truth of his father’s life, and at last reconciles his divided inheritance.

    • Great Gift for me

      I got this as a gift for my brother but came back to get this for me. I read the book but listening to President Obama narrate his story so eloquently and sometimes with humor is a special special treat. No matter how you voted, this President has a great and compelling story- everyone should hear it in the voice of our President.
