In this lyrical, unsentimental, and compelling memoir, the son of a black African father and a white American mother searches for a workable meaning to his life as a black American. It begins in New York, where Barack Obama learns that his father₇a figure he knows more as a myth than as a man₇has been killed in a car accident. This sudden death inspires an emotional odyssey₇first to a small town in Kansas, from which he retraces the migration of his mother₂s family to Hawaii, and then to Kenya, where he meets the African side of his family, confronts the bitter truth of his father₂s life, and at last reconciles his divided inheritance.
