From the Publisher:
A controversial Supreme Court justice recounts his life story, from his impoverished childhood in Jim Crow-era Georgia and struggles to acquire an education to his publicly contested confirmation to the nation's highest court and admiration of his family. Reprint. 75,000 first printing.

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.

Praise

"If only Clarence Thomas weren't a black conservative, his new memoir, MY GRANDFATHER'S SON, would be hailed as a kind of classic, a powerful, moving tale of a black man's ascent from bone-crushing poverty to the pinnacle of the American system of government....This is a great American story, written by an extraordinary man." - Rich Lowry 10/01/2007
