The summary says most of what you need to know about plot, leaving out only that
this is a novel about sphinx-like first lady Laura Bush. What *must* she think of it
all? The bulk of the novel, and the best part, deals with the early life of Alice
Blackwell, the LB-surrogate, in the days before her husband became first a governor,
then POTUS. Sittenfeld gives some sympathetic insight into how someone could find
herself living a life "in opposition to itself." This novel will make you want to
read bios of Laura Bush, as well as more fiction by Curtis Sittenfeld.
