New Book: My Grandfather's Son: A Memoir

The First Monday in October, the traditional start of the Supreme Court term, is being marked this year by the publication of Justice Clarence Thomas's autobiography.

Rush Limbaugh will feature a 90-minute taped interview with Justice Thomas during his radio program on Monday, October 1st. It's the first time Rush has ever featured an interview that lengthy on his show, and it's sure to be very interesting.

Power Line notes that the Washington Post seems to be shocked that Justice Thomas found his confirmation process disturbing.

More news about the book and upcoming interviews by ABC's fine legal reporter Jan Crawford Greenburg.

Patterico also has a lengthy post, focusing on Greenburg's interviews with Thomas.

It should be a fascinating book.

Monday Update: Ed Morrissey notes the interesting convergence of the publication of Justice Thomas's book with the "high-tech lynching" currently being experienced by Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly: "It has implications for this cycle, as certain organizations have apparently started an intellectually dishonest cherry-picking campaign against conservative commentators to discredit them as well."

More links regarding Justice Thomas's book have been posted by Scott Johnson at Power Line.

I heard Justice Thomas interviewed today. I don't see how anyone - no matter what side of the aisle - could not be impressed and have a deep respect for the sheer tenacity and charcter of this man who worked as hard as he did to overcome so many obstacles. Life has not been easy for him and most of us would have given up. That he didn't speaks volumes. Unfortunately, the predispositions some hold will prevent them from seeing this.

I found him very impressive during his interview with Rush Limbaugh. Talk about a man with character.

Best wishes, Laura
