Kamala's way : an American life

Morain, Dan (author.).

Summary

Summary: "There's very little that's conventional about Kamala Harris, and yet her personal story also represents the best of America. She grew up the eldest daughter of single mother, a cancer researcher who emigrated from India at the age of nineteen in search of a better education. She and her husband, an accomplished economist from Jamaica, split up when Kamala was only five. The Kamala Harris the public knows is tough, smart, and demanding, and longtime Los Angeles Times reporter Dan Morain has been there from the start. Kamala's Way is essential reading for everyone curious about the first woman elected to the office of Vice President of the United States in American history"--Page 4 of cover.
