This fascinating biography offers new insights into the conflict with Anita Hill that made Clarence Thomas a household name--and inflicted deep scars on him that endure to this day. The author draws on insights supplied by former Supreme Court clerks and interviews with Washington insiders like former president George Bush and Court colleague Antonin Scalia in his exploration of Thomas's life and jurisprudence over the last decade. Andrew Peyton Thomas peels away all the cliches, giving us a vivid and balanced account of a remarkable American life.
