As signalled by the beautiful blue icons that have just appeared over there (→) in the sidebar, two new Enhanced Editions, both by Barack Obama, are available now in the App Store.
Written long before he started down the road to the Presidency, Dreams From My Father is a refreshing, revealing portrait of a young man asking the big questions about identity and belonging.
The son of a black African father and a white American mother, Obama recounts an emotional odyssey. He retraces the migration of his mother’s family from Kansas to Hawaii, then to his childhood home in Indonesia. Finally he travels to Kenya, where he confronts the bitter truth of his father’s life and at last reconciles his divided inheritance.
‘This may be the best-written memoir ever produced by an American politician.’
Joe Klein, Time
In The Audacity of Hope, Barack Obama discusses the importance of empathy in politics, his hopes for a different America with different policies, and how the ideals of democracy can be renewed.
With intimacy and self-deprecating humour, Obama describes his experiences as a politician, about balancing his family life and his public vocation.
‘Offers readers on this side of the Atlantic a window not just into the mind of one of America’s most exciting politicians but into the political landscape of the post-Bush era.’ David Lammy, Guardian
Both apps are available in the App Store now.
