Few of us recognize the name of Stanley Ann Durham (1942-1995), but this bright, short-lived, much-traveled Midwesterner was the mother of Barack Obama, who described her as "the dominant figure in my formative years." To discover this posthumously influential woman, biographer Janny Scott interviewed nearly two hundred friends, colleagues, and relatives of Dunham, including the president himself. A Singular Woman is worth reading both as a heartwarming personal story and as testimony to the profound influence she has had on her son.
