"All men live in the shadow of their fathers—the more distant the father, the deeper the shadow. Barack Obama describes his confrontation with this shadow in his provocative autobiography… and he also persuasively describes the phenomenon of belonging to two different worlds, and thus belonging to neither… At a young age and without much experience as a writer, Barack Obama has bravely tackled the complexities of his remarkable upbringing" (Paul Watkins, New York Times, contemporary review). Stated first edition.
Fine in a fine dust jacket. A beautiful inscribed first edition.
