9780060565565: My Grandfather's Son: A Memoir

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. Thomas speaks out, revealing the pieces of his life he holds dear, detailing the suffering and injustices he has overcome, including the acrimonious and polarizing Senate hearing involving a former aide, Anita Hill, and the depression and despair it created in his own life and the lives of those closest to him. 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.

About the Author:

Clarence Thomas is Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. Born in Pinpoint, Georgia, he is a graduate of the College of the Holy Cross and Yale Law School. He lives with his wife and great nephew in northern Virginia.

From AudioFile:

Justice Thomass memoir relates his rise from poverty to the elite circles of Washington as a justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, with a particular focus on the events that surrounded his confirmation hearings. He clearly feels a strong desire to tell his story, not only in his own words, but also in his own voice in this audiobook. Although his narration is clear and articulate, it is also studied and deliberate. He reads in a relatively flat tone that seldom varies, even in portions of the book in which his written words express strong emotions and firm convictions. J.E.M.
