Praise

“The authors superbly deconstruct Thomas’s multiple narratives of critical life-events—the accounts vary depending on his audience—and it says much for their intellectual integrity that though they are clearly critical of their subject, their presentation allows readers to make their own judgments.”New York Times Book Review

“Clarence Thomas, even as the quiet justice, is a clanging symbol of politics and race in our time. I can’t think of two writers I’d rather have cut through the cacophony of the Thomas mythology than Kevin Merida and Michael A. Fletcher. In Supreme Discomfort, they have found the divided soul that divides a nation.”—David Maraniss, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of A Good American Family: The Red Scare and My Father

“An engrossing biography of a conflicted man . . . [Merida and Fletcher] have done a superb job with this both harsh and sympathetic life of Clarence Thomas . . . an unflinching look at success and race in America.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
