In her starred review of American Wife, Joanne Wilkinson definitely captures the nuances of Curtis Sittenfeld’s fictionalized account of Laura Bush’s life–but Booklist word counts don’t allow her any room for excerpts. Interested parties can visit Radar (“American Wife: Laura Bush Explored“) for that. Warning: Imagined descriptions of the President’s private parts lie on the other end of the link.

Radar writes of the book:

The result is a masterful highbrow-lowbrow mash-up that satisfies as ass-kicking literary fiction and juicy gossip simultaneously.

“Ass-kicking literary fiction”–what author wouldn’t want that blurb on their book flap?
