Soon after announcing her presidential candidacy in early 2019, US Senator Kamala Harris made herself a heroine to the left and a villain to the right with her call for “Medicare for all.” Harris’s prescription endeared her to progressives, but earned her the enmity of Republicans and even some centrists. This autobiography serves as Harris’s introduction to American voters. She takes pains to portray herself as both a sharp-elbowed protector of the weak – whether they’re victims of crime, children fleeing harsh conditions in Central America or homeowners facing foreclosure – and a fierce foe of Wall Street titans and Trump administration officials.
