Obama's Half-Brother to Release Autobiography

Will detail domestic abuse inflicted by father


President Barack Obama's half-brother is releasing an autobiography in February that details the domestic abuse from their father and recounts sporadic, but intense encounters with his older brother over the years, the Associated Press reported.

The 500-page book seeks to raise awareness of domestic abuse by using his family's story as an example.

In "Cultures: My Odyssey of Self-Discovery", Mark Obama Ndesandjo revisits the theme of domestic abuse from his earlier semiautobiographical novel, "Nairobi to Shenzhen: A Novel of Love in the East," which featured an abusive parent patterned on their late father.
