Book of the Week - "Michelle. A biography by Liza Mundy"

This week we decided on a book that gives a deeply reported, balanced portrait of the woman making history alongside Barack Obama. Liza Mundy describes in her timely and informative biography a complicated, often-ambivalent, and always independent woman who is quite different from her husband. This book is an enormously valuable source for the context of Michelle Obama's life.
