The number-one international best seller - and the Grammy-award winner for best spoken album in 2006.
Before Barack Obama became a politician, he was, among other things, a writer. Dreams from My Father is a masterpiece: a refreshing, revealing portrait of a young man asking the big questions about identity and belonging.
The son of a black African father and a white American mother, Obama recounts an emotional odyssey. He retraces the migration of his mother's family from Kansas to Hawaii, then to his childhood home in Indonesia. Finally he travels to Kenya, where he confronts the bitter truth of his father's life and at last reconciles his divided inheritance.
"A remarkable story, beautifully told." (
"This may be the best-written memoir ever produced by an American politician." (Joe Klein, Time magazine)
"Extraordinary . . . truly moving . . . Obama is a born narrator, with a mastery of colour, scene and personality." (Simon Jenkins, Sunday Times)
