The acclaimed word-of-mouth bestseller about the marriage of an American First Lady- A rich, utterly absorbing, powerful story of how an ordinary girl from an unremarkable town grows up to become First Lady of the United States. 'Honest, wonderful and smart as hell' Guardian 'Curtis Sittenfeld is in a league of her own' Observer All I did is marry him. You are the ones who gave him power. Quiet, bookish Alice Blackwell never dreamed of being First Lady. Much less to a President whose politics she doesn't believe in. On perhaps the most important day of her husband's presidency, Alice looks back on the strange and unlikely path that led her to the White House, and to a decision - both treacherous and long overdue - that could jeopardise everything. Taking inspiration from real life, American Wife is a remarkable portrait of a woman caught between her feelings for her husband, her country, and herself. 'My favourite book of the century' HADLEY FREEMAN, GUARDIAN
