About this title


Winner of the Palimpsest Prize In a story reminiscent of an old gospel tune heard from a deep words church in Tennessee, LET THE GLORY OUT, by Albert Gore Sr., is at once a telling account of a life spent in politics helping to shape many of the most significant moments of the twentieth century, and a rare glimpse into the private life of a legendary political family committed to public service. In a refreshingly candid and lively discussion, a picture of the senior Gore emerges as a tireless advocate for social change who stuck to principle and never backed down from controversy. The pride of vistory and the pain of defeat fill every page.

More profound, perhaps, is the personal portrait he gives of his young son, Al Gore Jr., an unsentimental look at at a father's hopes for his son's future, now placed in the context of a son honoring his now deceased father's memory through his own political legacy. From commentary on race relations to words of inspiration for our youth, Gore Sr. embodied the best of Southern progressivism and, along the way, clearly articulated the bedrock issues that have to come define much of American politics today.
