Al Franken, Giant of the Senate - Al Franken

Staff Pick

Senator Al Franken has graduated from being a comedian-turnedsenator to a senator who deftly uses humor as a political tool. His funny and serious new book, Al Franken, Giant of the Senate (Twelve, $28), tells the story of his Minnesota roots, his 42-year marriage to his wife Franni, his journey from Saturday Night Live to a 312-vote U.S. Senate victory in 2008, and his hard-earned stripes as a member of Congress at a time of growing partisanship and public disillusionment about government. The end result is one of the most genuine and entertaining political memoirs to date. And as we look to 2020, let’s remember: Weirder things have happened in America than the election of a Jewish comedian to be president. Just sayin’.
