by Barack Obama - £9.99 Cannongate Books (2008)
paperback ISBN 13: 9781847670946 | ISBN 10: 1847670946
In this memoir written at the age of 33, Barack Obama, son of a black African father and a white American mother, describes the search for meaning in his life as a black American.
He begins in New York where he learns that his father, more a myth than a man to him, has been killed in a car accident. This sudden death inspires an emotional odyssey that sees Obama travel to Kansas, Hawaii and Kenya in search of his family's roots.
A memoir that rightfully belongs on the shelves alongside the autobiography of Malcolm X, Dreams from My Father is an unforgettable read.
