During his thirteen years as Washington’s chief financial officer, Gandhi ushered the near-bankrupt city back to financial health. As he recounts in this stirring memoir, triumphing against the odds has been the pattern of his life: born in an Indian village that had no electricity or running water, Gandhi left for Mumbai at age 17 then made his way to the U.S. when he was 25—arriving with just $7. His story of hard work, determination, and resilience is at once the portrait of an extraordinary individual and a testament to the potency of another great survivor: the American dream itself. Gandhi will be in conversation with Robert Rimm, managing editor of Arch Street Press.
