​“[A] sparkling, revelatory memoir.” —Oprah Daily

Absolutely incredible.” —Mika Brzezinksi, co-host, Morning Joe

An epic, heart-tugging journey.” —Glamour

“If a life can be called implausible, Mazie Hirono has lived it. In Heart of Fire, she tells an astonishingly compelling story. As a child born in postwar Japan, she crossed an ocean with her brother and mother, grew up in poverty in paradisiacal Hawaii, and emerged as a fiery voice and agent of change in the male-dominated, rough-and-tumble worlds of American politics.
