Reviews

"Fluidly, calmly, insightfully, Obama guides us straight to the intersection of the most serious questions of identity, class, and race."
--Washington Post Book World

"Beautifully crafted...moving and candid...This book belongs on the shelf beside works like James McBride's The Color of Water and Greg Williams's Life on the Color Line as a tale of living astride America's racial categories."
--Scott Turow

"Provocative...Persuasively describes the phenomenon of belonging to two different worlds, and thus belonging to neither."
--The New York Times Book Review

"One of the most powerful books of self-discovery I've ever read, all the more so for its illuminating insights into the problems not only of race, class, and color, but of culture and ethnicity. It is also beautifully written, skillfully layered, and paced like a good novel."
--Charlayne Hunter-Gault

"In Dreams from My Father Barack Obama takes us on a probing journey in a search for the truths about family and race. Obama's writing is incisive yet forgiving. This is a book worth savoring."
--Alex Kotlowitz

"Dreams from My Father is an exquisite, sensitive study of this wonderful young author's journey into adulthood, his search for community and his place in it, his quest for an understanding of his roots, and his discovery of the poetry of human life. Perceptive and wise, this book will tell you something about yourself whether you are black or white."
--Marian Wright Edelman
