What I'm Reading

American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld

American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld

I haven’t had much time for reading lately, but just now I’m well into American Wife, which is a barely disguised as taken from the life of Laura Bush, the president’s wife.  The book has many faults, the jumping from different times is one, and although I have grown fond of Alice, I’m finding Charlie, the president hard to like. I wonder if that was the intention. However it is very well written, a curiously compelling book, so I shall plough on and see what transpires.
