The acclaimed word-of-mouth bestseller about the marriage of an American First Lady
My favourite book of the year Kate Atkinson
On one of the most important days of her husbands presidency, Alice Blackwell considers the strange and unlikely path that has led them to the White House, and that has landed an ordinary girl from a small town into the most public of roles. Weaving race, class, wealth and fate into a brilliant literary reimagining of the life of a reserved woman not unlike Laura Bush, American Wife is a remarkable novel that lays bare the pressures and contradictions of a marriage exposed in the global spotlight.
