When Barack Obama won the 2008 presidential election, he
also won a long-running debate with his wife Michelle. Contrary to her fears,
politics now seemed like a worthwhile, even noble pursuit. Together they
planned a White House life that would be as normal and sane as possible.
Then they moved in.
In The Obamas,
Jodi Kantor takes us deep inside the White House as they try to grapple with
their new roles, change the country, raise children, maintain friendships, and
figure out what it means to be the first black president and first lady. Filled
with riveting detail and insight into their partnership, emotions and
personalities, and written with a keen eye for the ironies of public life, The
Obamas is an intimate portrait that will surprise even readers who thought
they knew the president and first lady. Download and start listening now!
