Kamala's way : an American life / Dan Morain.
A revelatory biography of the first Black woman to stand for Vice President charts how the daughter of two immigrants in segregated California became one of the most effective power players in the United States.
There's very little that's conventional about Kamala Harris, yet her personal story also represents the best of America. Morain introduces us to the fast-rising prosecutor, who became the first Black female attorney general in California history. He shows us that Harris is a shrewd strategist, a risk-taker who ran for the United States Senate, embraced Barack Obama's candidacy when he was just a long shot, and cares for her both her personal and political families while doing things her own way. -- adapted from jacket
