9780061771965: Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage

Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage is an intimate and ultimately riveting look at their unique ­relationship, and the humor, faith, fortitude, and grace that define it. It is, above all, a uniquely American love story. Given the obvious historic significance of what they accomplished­ together, the marriage of Barack and Michelle stands as one of the great personal and political partnerships in American history.

Yet, incredibly, the true nature of the marriage remains a mystery. And now, for the first time, Christopher Andersen draws on important sources—some speaking here for the first time—to paint the first complete, compelling portrait of America's first black First Family.

About the Author:

Christopher Andersen is the critically acclaimed author of twenty-eight books, which have been translated into more than twenty-five languages worldwide. A former contributing editor of Time magazine and senior editor of People magazine, Andersen has also written hundreds of articles for a wide range of publications, including Life magazine, the New York Times, and Vanity Fair.

From AudioFile:

Christopher Andersen's take on Barack and Michelle Obama is that they are "remarkable" for leading lives that many would recognize. Dion Graham hits that angle home by narrating with an intimate tone as Andersen touches upon the glamour of the presidency and President Obama's historical importance but also takes in marital problems, Michelle's concerns about Barack's political career, and Barack's smoking habit. While most of the President's life has become familiar through his own works, details such as his stealthy campaign to head the Harvard Law Review add insight into his personality. Listeners will likely be more interested in Michelle's life and her reactions to her husband's political ambitions and successes. Andersen reveals the couple through fresh journalistic eyes.
