Back cover copy

Barack and Michelle: Portrait of an American Marriage is an intimate and ultimately riveting look at their unique -relationship, and the humor, faith, fortitude, and grace that define it. It is, above all, a uniquely American love story. Given the obvious historic significance of what they accomplished- together, the marriage of Barack and Michelle stands as one of the great personal and political partnerships in American history.

Yet, incredibly, the true nature of the marriage remains a mystery. And now, for the first time, Christopher Andersen draws on important sources--some speaking here for the first time--to paint the first complete, compelling portrait of America's first black First Family.
