American Wife, by Curtis Sittenfeld, is a fictional account of a woman who may or may not be someone similar to former First Wife Laura Bush. Once I got over my initial, “Is this what really happened to Laura Bush?” ponderings, I enjoyed this humorous, sometimes bawdy, tale. Sittenfeld’s heroine, Alice Lindgren, is very likeable. If you’re a fan of political chick lit, I recommend checking this book out.
