AMERICAN WIFE – Curtis Sittenfeld, 2008

I was slightly disappointed with this. Not with the narrative, which is in modern parlance, page
turning; but with the style of the writing.
I was led to believe that it was ‘beautiful prose’ but, to be honest, it is nothing extraordinary. However, I read it over two days and enjoyed it immensely.

I knew nothing about Laura Bush, whose story is such an influence. I have not been inspired to find out the facts but I liked the fiction.
