Clarence Thomas Book Portrays a Tortured Soul

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas's new autobiography has just been published. Titled My Grandfather's Son, it covers his life up to his swearing in as a member of the high court.

In the book, Justice Thomas speaks out in vivid — and sometimes seething — detail about the events surrounding his nomination battle, the charges of sexual harrassment against him by Anita Hill and his memories of growing up poor in rural Georgia.
