“Novelists get called master storytellers all the time, but Sittenfeld really is one.”
The Washington Post
The epic yet intimate story of an ordinary woman thrust into extra-ordinary circumstances when she becomes first lady.
A disarmingly candid and sympathetic novel about a young woman's fantasies of family and love colliding with the challenges and realities of adult life.
An insightful, achingly funny coming-of-age story as well as a brilliant dissection of class, race, and gender in a hothouse of adolescent angst and ambition.
