Description:

First printing, full number line. Signed in blue ink by the author on a "Barbara Bush" bookplate on the front endpaper: "Barbara Bush." This real and actual signature by the wife of one president and mother of another is distinguished from the printed facsimile signature on the title page, which is not an "auto-pen" signature (of zero value) and thus can be said to have "less-than-zero" value. Book is quarter-bound in purple paper with a gilt facsimile signature on the front board (exactly matching the facsimile signature on the title page, which should be a tip-off to all but the most-deluded that the title-page "signature" is printed) and a blue-colored, gilt-lettered, cloth spine. Book is tight, square, and unmarked; corners sharp, spine ends lightly bumped. The dust jacket is not price-clipped (original price $25.00); quarter-inch closed tear at tail of spine; light edgewear. Brodart protected. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Politics aside, people worldwide have come to admire Barbara Bush's wit, candor and compassion, as well as her unswerving devotion to her husband and children. Now, she gives listeners a very private look at a life she lived in the public eye for more than 25 years.
With the contemporary American history as the backdrop, Mrs. Bush remembers the experiences that led to the White House, from growing up in Rye, New York and meeting George Bush, through life as a young bride and mother and the almost unbearable pain of losing a child. She talks candidly about her years in public life in Washington, New York and China, and describes her role as the wife of the Vice President, culminating in the climactic White House years.
Drawing upon excerpts from the diary she has compiled for more than 30 years, Mrs. Bush takes us behind the scenes of the Persian Gulf conflict and the end of the Cold War, and introduces us to the world leaders and their spouses with whom she has developed friendships over the years. She also talks about both the Bushes' struggle to overcome Graves Disease, the disappointment of the 1992 Presidential campaign and the joys of rediscovering private life, and tells us why she threw so much of her energy and compassion behind the important cause of making America more literate.
Filled with the funny, often self-deprecating and occasionally touching anecdotes for which she is well-known, Mrs. Bush's memoir will charm her millions of admirers and earn her many more.

About the Author: Barbara Bush was the First Lady of the United States from 1989 to 1993. She is the honorary chairman of the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy and the author of C. Fred's Story and the New York Times number-one bestseller Millie's Book. This memoir, like those books, was written by Mrs. Bush herself. She lives in Houston, Texas, and Kennebunkport, Maine.
