The Communist

“I admire Russia for wiping out an economic system which permitted a handful of rich to exploit and beat gold from the millions of plain people. . . . As one who believes in freedom and democracy for all, I honor the Red nation.” —FRANK MARSHALL DAVIS, 1947

In his memoir, Barack Obama omits the full name of his mentor, simply calling him “Frank.” Now, the truth is out: Never has a figure as deeply troubling and controversial as Frank Marshall Davis had such an impact on the development of an American president…

Barack Obama: The Story David Maraniss: Books

"One of Obama's habits was, and remains, making up stuff to suit his needs. An example of this tendency was the "minor case of literary license involving Obama's memoir; the few paragraphs he devoted to his experiences at B.I. and his descriptions of the office atmosphere were seen as distortions and misrepresentations by many of the people who had worked with him." His job behind enemy lines working for the business community so annoyed him that he gave up his office, his private secretary, his suit and tie and returned to the public sector. He makes a big point of this in his memoirs, but ac

Channel of the Broken Gun ("A Pathway from Hell" (Channel of the Broken Gun, Head and Empty))

Channel was written while the author was following his alcoholism and addiction into its depths.

Unaware of where he was at the time it was written; David describes an unapologetic life of drinking, using drugs, and using women to fill the large void he felt in his soul.

He describes a certain level of shame and guilt that motivated nearly every action he took while living that life. It is not until the follow up books of Head and Empty where we get a glimpse of his own understanding.

In Channel we are able to watch the tortured human being seek relief from his pain by any means necessary…

Scarred: A Memoir

In 1978, seven-year-old George Molho was kidnapped by his own father. For a year, he survived mental and physical abuse to the point of torture. He found it easier to get used to hell, instead of hoping that heaven was around the corner. George eventually escaped, but surviving the aftermath proved to be much more difficult.

Past and present are skillfully woven together to connect the pieces of Molho's childhood and adult life that shaped the man he would become. The old adage 'love conquers all' is splayed open to reveal the inner workings that we all seek to understand…
