---------------------------------------------------------------- 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 husband's 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.

"Such an accomplished work of fiction... a thoughtful and compelling examination of the mechanics of family and marriage... Knowing and knowledgeable, yet also inventive and original, American Wife is a thrilling combination of history and surprises" * Guardian * "Superbly well-written - one of the most absorbing books of the year" * Evening Standard * "Thoroughly enjoyable. The plot is beautifully paced, the writing quick, clear, absorbing... A sweeping saga" * The Times * "A powerful, utterly compelling and strangely moving fictional account of a First Lady who bears more than a passing resemblance to Laura Bush" * Daily Mirror * "I was utterly absorbed in this story of a political marriage and a wife who has her own reasons. Curtis Sittenfeld has thrown a powerful light on small town America and its misunderstood values" -- Linda Grant, Booker shortlisted author of The Clothes on Their Backs
