Praise

Praise for Dreams from My Father
 
ONE OF ESSENCE’S 50 MOST IMPACTFUL BLACK BOOKS OF THE PAST 50 YEARS
 
“Guides us straight to the intersection of the most serious questions of identity, class, and race.” —The Washington Post
 
Provocative. . . . Persuasively describes the phenomenon of belonging to two different worlds, and thus belonging to neither.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Obama’s writing is incisive yet forgiving. This is a book worth savoring.”—Alex Kotlowitz, author of There Are No Children Here
 
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, author of In My Place

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
