The Story
David Maraniss

To capture the complex story of Barack Obama, journalist Maraniss (Into the Story, 2010) writes what he calls “not a traditional biography.” Maraniss begins with stories of Obama’s American and African ancestors several generations before he was born and ends with the 27-year-old community organizer leaving Chicago for Harvard Law School. An insightful Presidential biography from the author of Rome 1960: The Olympics That Changed the World (2008).
