The Senator Next Door: A Memoir from the Heartland
by Amy Klobuchar
" Now, in The Senator Next Door, she (Sen. Amy Klobuchar) chronicles her remarkable heartland journey, from her immigrant grandparents to her middle-class suburban upbringing to her rise in American politics.
Optimistic, plainspoken and often very funny, The Senator Next Door is a story about how the girl next door decided to enter the fray and make a difference."
