The son of a black African father and a white American mother, Obama was only two years old when his father walked out on the family. Many years later, Obama receives a phone call from Nairobi: his father is dead. This sudden news inspires an emotional odyssey for Obama, determined to learn the truth of his father's life and reconcile his divided inheritance. Written at the age of thirty-three, Dreams from My Father is an unforgettable read. It illuminates not only Obama's journey, but also our universal desire to understand our history, and what makes us the people we are.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This may be the best-written memoir ever produced by an American politician. -- Joe Klein * * Time * *
A remarkable story, beautifully told. -- Robert McCrum * * Observer * *
Whatever else people expect from a politician, it's not usually a beautifully written personal memoir steeped in honesty. Barack Obama has produced one. -- Oona King * * The Times * *
Obama's writing is characterised throughout by a graceful eloquence, a generosity of perception and spirit rare in young men of many gifts and charisma . . . here is a testimony for the ages. -- Candace Allen * * Independent * *

He is a born narrator. I am so pleased I got this audio book as it made me feel closer to the story and his life. A very well written book. Highly recommended.
