As her interviewer put it, a fictional version of US Senator Tammy Duckworth’s life might be derided as unrealistic.
For years before she became the first sitting senator to give birth while in office, Duckworth faced — and conquered — a number of challenges, including losing both legs while serving in the Army.
So perhaps unsurprisingly, she has written a memoir, Every Day Is A Gift, which came out today.
Michel Martin, who made the observation about the implausibility of her life, hosted Duckworth on All Things Considered to preview her memoir.
You can read their conversation about Every Day Is A Gift on NPR’s website or listen to it below.
