Congressman Duncan served as U.S. Representative for Tennessee's Second District from 1988-2019. While he could have written a dense memoir, instead he chose to share anecdotes from his life. Join us in learning more about his family, early life, and time as a lawyer and judge and how these stories figure into his public service career. "As you will read in this book," writes Congressman Duncan, "every job gave me strange, funny, and unusual stories."


About the Speaker
John J. Duncan Jr. served as a respected criminal defense lawyer and judge before being elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in a special election in 1988 to replace his father, who had died in office.
