In an article today in the NYTimes(of all places) a writer does a review of new book by David Maranniss, a well known political writer and biographer.
The NYTimes headline where you can read the entire article is titled
“New Book Raises Questions About Obama Memoir” (the memoir referred to is “Dreams From My Father”)
The author of the article is Michael D. Shear and it was published on June 19 2012.
Michael Shear opens his NYT article with this:
“At Harvard Law School in 1990 (President) Obama found himself lovingly mocked by his peers for relentlessly promoting the exotic story of a search for racial identity that later became the theme of his best selling book “Dreams From My Father.”
……”My mother was a backup singer for Abba. They were good folks,” a student parody of Mr.Obama joked. In Chicago, “I discovered I was black and have remained so ever since.”
And further in the article Shear says
“A new book by David Maranniss of the Washington Post claims to document the many ways—-some very small, a few large,—in which Mr. Obama’s youthfully constructed narrative appears to be contradicted by the people and events in his life.”
It is a very interesting article in the NY Times for June 19 2012. I found it remarkable that the liberal, and very- supportive- of- President- Obama- New York Times has published this book review by Michael Shear.
It makes for very interesting reading;
