Joe Biden : American Dreamer by Evan Osnos
The new biography of President-elect Joe Biden by National Book Award winner and New Yorker staff writer Evan Osnos.
Blending up-close journalism and broader context, Evan Osnos illuminates Biden’s life and captures the characters and meaning of an extraordinary presidential election. He draws on lengthy interviews with Biden and on revealing conversations with more than a hundred others, including President Barack Obama, Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg, and a range of progressive activists, advisers, opponents, and Biden family members. In this nuanced portrait, Biden emerges as flawed, yet resolute, and tempered by the flame of tragedy – a man who just may be uncannily suited for his moment in history.
‘It is impossible to come away from Osnos’s biography without a sense of awe at what Biden has overcome to arrive at this point.’ Guardian. ‘Osnos, who has been writing about Biden for years for the New Yorker, believes Biden could be more radical in office than people who have tracked his career might believe…A beautifully written short volume.’ Financial Times.
The Truths We Hold : An American Journey by Kamala Harris
The daughter of immigrants and civil rights activists, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris was raised in a California community that cared deeply about social justice. As she rose to prominence as a political leader, her experiences would become her guiding light as she grappled with an array of complex issues and learned to bring a voice to the voiceless.
Now, in The Truths We Hold, Harris reckons with the big challenges we face together. Drawing on the hard-won wisdom and insight from her own career and the work of those who have most inspired her, she communicates a vision of shared struggle, shared purpose, and shared values as we confront the great work of our day.
