Justice Thomas’s Memoir


Travel and other obligations have prevented me from keeping current on the back-and-forth over Justice Thomas’s new book, so I’ve especially enjoyed Matt’s posts and all the other NRO reviews and coverage. 


I did find time last week to read My Grandfather’s Son.  Bottom line:  It’s a beautiful and powerful and revealing account of Justice Thomas’s amazing path from Pin Point to the Supreme Court—and of his relationship with the remarkable grandfather who raised and formed him. 


I’ve also watched some of the excerpts (available here) of ABC News’s Jan Crawford Greenburg’s very interesting interview with Justice Thomas and look forward to more.
