Title

Dreams from My Father

Description

Dreams from My Father recounts the earliest portion of President Barack Obama’s life from his childhood until he entered Harvard Law School. The memoir, praised by many authors and critics for its prose, captures Obama’s voice in his search for self-understanding. Published at the start of his political career prior to running for Illinois Senate, Dreams from My Father is a unique and deeply personal political autobiography. Rather than focusing on Obama’s political philosophy and aspirations, the memoir explores his formative journey to understand his own racial identity inherited from an absent father. This first edition copy of Dreams from My Father was signed in the White House by President Barack Obama for Arnold Grisham.
