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?
