Description
Beautifully crafted . . . moving and candid . . . this book belongs on the shelf beside works like James McBride s The Color of Water and Gregory Howard Williams s Life on the Color Line as a tale of living astride America s racial categories. Scott Turow 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. Provocative . . . Persuasively describes the phenomenon of belonging to two different worlds, and thus belonging to neither. New York Times Book Review Obama s writing is incisive yet forgiving. This is a book worth savoring. Alex Kotlowitz, author of There Are No Children Here "
