Provocative, inspiring, and unflinchingly honest, "My Grandfather's Son" is the story of one of America's most remarkable and controversial leaders, Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas, told in his own words. His grandfather, whom he called "Daddy," was a black man with a strict work ethic, trying to raise a family in the years of Jim Crow. Thomas witnessed his grandparents' steadfastness despite injustices, their hopefulness despite bigotry, and their deep love for their country. His own quiet ambition would propel him to Holy Cross and Yale Law School, and eventually-despite a bitter, highly contested public confirmation-to the highest court in the land. In this candid and deeply moving memoir, a quintessential American tale of hardship and grit, Clarence Thomas recounts his astonishing journey for the first time, and pays homage to the man who made it possible. 304 pages, hardcover from Harpercollins.
