About the Author

Curtis Sittenfeld is the author of the word-of-mouth bestseller American Wife, which was longlisted for the Orange Prize, as was her first novel, Prep, a New York Times bestseller. Sisterland, her fourth novel, was a Richard & Judy Book Club pick, and her most recent Sunday Times bestseller was Eligible, a contemporary retelling of Pride & Prejudice. Her books are translated into 25 languages. She is married, with two young children, and lives in the American Mid-West. Visit her website, www.curtissittenfeld.com

Reviews

Another hit for Sittenfeld after Prep and The Man of My Dreams? Here, unassuming Alice Blackwell goes from small-town girl to First Lady. With a ten-city tour. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

Such an accomplished work of fiction... a thoughtful and compelling examination of the mechanics of family and marriage... Knowing and knowledgeable, yet also inventive and original, American Wife is a thrilling combination of history and surprises * Guardian *
Superbly well-written - one of the most absorbing books of the year * Evening Standard *
Thoroughly enjoyable. The plot is beautifully paced, the writing quick, clear, absorbing... A sweeping saga * The Times *
A powerful, utterly compelling and strangely moving fictional account of a First Lady who bears more than a passing resemblance to Laura Bush * Daily Mirror *
I was utterly absorbed in this story of a political marriage and a wife who has her own reasons. Curtis Sittenfeld has thrown a powerful light on small town America and its misunderstood values
