American Wife
American Wife | Curtis Sittenfeld
In the year 2000, in the closest election in American history, Alice Blackwell's husband becomes president of the United States. Their time in the White House proves to be heady, tumultuous, and controversial. But it is Alice's own story - that of a kind, bookish, only child born in the 1940s Midwest who comes to inhabit a life of dizzying wealth and power - that is itself remarkable. Alice candidly describes her small-town upbringing, and the tragedy that shaped her identity; she recalls her early adulthood as a librarian, and her surprising courtship with the man who swept her off her feet; she tells of the crisis that almost ended their marriage; and she confides the privileges and difficulties of being first lady, a role that is uniquely cloistered and public, secretive and exposed. In Alice Blackwell, Curtis Sittenfeld has created her most dynamic and complex heroine yet. American Wife is not a novel about politics. It is a gorgeously written novel that weaves race, class, fate and wealth into a brilliant tapestry. It is a novel in which the unexpected becomes inevitable, and the pleasures and pain of intimacy and love are laid bare.

I read two of Curtis Sittenfeld‘s books that I loved- Eligibility and You Think It, I‘ll Say It, but this one I am bailing on. The part about Alice growing up, interested me- but she seemed to lose herself in Charlie‘s ultra privileged, crass world. I had to bail. Just not for me.

ChasingOm This is the one that‘s supposedly based on former First Lady Laura Bush, right? 3y

For a tomb of a book it was a really easy read, I didn't once think when will this ever end like I normally do with hefty books. I loved it. So well written and had me really invested in the life of Alice. Lost a little interest when the action moved to the White House, felt a little preachy. None the less a fantastic read.

Cathythoughts I agree ! A great read 👍🏻❤️ 3y

The one thing that puts me off a book is long chapters. When I saw that chapter one would take me 1 hour 45 minutes to read I considered reading something else. Glad I didn't, I'm loving this. The breaks in the chapter are helping to keep it moving.

Ncostell Really long chapters make me crazy too. I also have this book on my TBR pile. I‘ll have to keep your encouraging words in mind when I pick this one up! 3y
Nisjdjd I was very engaged in this book for about the first 75%, so it went quickly; but the last fourth wasn‘t very believable to me.😫 3y

This fictional biography, loosely based on the life of George W Bush's wife, wasn't what I expected. I thought it would focus on the presidential years, but the clue was in the title - the majority of the book is dedicated to an honest retrospective appraisal of the life and marriage of the narrator, Alice Blackwell. I enjoyed the way Sittenfeld portrayed Alice's perspective - her doubts and internal conflicts. Very readable for such a big book.

Loved every page of this one. I had seen some not great reviews from people who didn‘t like the faux-biographical aspect of Laura Bush‘s life, but if this is meant to represent who she is and was in the White House then I think I may actually like her now. (Though I doubt that‘s the case.) Curtis Sittenfeld is, as always, unbelievably deft with words, plot, and character. Loved it!

I really enjoyed this book and felt that Alice was a well rounded and complex character - kudos to Sittenfeld for doing that! The White House portion did feel the weakest to me but it‘s still a pick. Now that I know this is (loosely?) based on Laura Bush‘s life, that part makes a lot more sense.

One of my all-time favorite audiobooks. Currently re-listening for the third or fourth time.

aschermetz @StacyDLane I haven't! Is it good? This is the only Sittenfeld I've read and I am afraid that others will suck compared to how much I love this one haha. I anxiously awaiting her new one though, it's going to be loosely based on HRC and what would have happened if she didn't marry Bill! 5y

Wow! I enjoyed this a lot more than I even expected to. A fictional story based on the life of Laura and G. W. Bush and I really, really enjoyed it (who knew?). It's very ambitious, covers a lot of ground, and is a brick of a book (550+ pages) but so well laid out and engrossing that I flew threw it in a couple of days. It raised a lot of questions for me and I was googling things almost the whole time - I'm impressed by Sittenfeld once again!

Continuing to enjoy political fiction (well in this case based on the life of Laura Bush but still) while attempting (mostly unsuccessfully) to ignore whatever our asshat of a "leader" is tweeting these days during his farce of a presidency. Who knew the Bush's would be a suitable alternative? ??‍♀️

I'm probably cheating with the #americanboy prompt, because this book technically focuses on a woman. Alice is the new First Lady, the year is 2000, and her character is based on real life First Lady Laura Bush. Although the book focuses on Alice's entire life, there's plenty about her husband in there as well. And he's definitely the definition of American Boy. #lyricalapril
