American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld

The American Wife is a surprising book. I was about half way through the book before I realised that the main character Alice Blackwell is loosely based on Laura Bush. This disturbed me because I was really identifying and admiring Alice but I hate George Bush.

Despite this, its really good read, focusing on Alice’s relationship with her husband, American politics and the changing role of women in society.
