Extensive product information
When Michelle Robinson was little, her world was the South Side of Chicago, where she and her brother Craig shared a bedroom in their parents' apartment on the first floor and played tag in the park and her parents, Fraser and Marian Robinson, raised her to be a genuine and confident young woman. But life soon took her to very different worlds, including Princeton lecture halls, where she first felt what it meant to be the only black woman in the room, to the glass office tower where she worked as a top corporate lawyer - and where one summer morning a law student named Barack Obama appeared at her desk and messed up her carefully planned life.
In her book, My Story, Michelle Obama first describes the early years of her marriage, trying to balance work and family on the one hand, and her husband's fast-moving political career on the other. She shares our conversations on topics such as whether to run for president and when it comes to her role as a popular, yet often criticized person in his campaign. She tells everything with charm, humor and unusual candor, and gives a lively inside-out account of both her family's historic launch into the global spotlights and their life at the White House in those eight memorable years as she got to know her country and the land her.
