Morgan here. So I just found out the theme of Curtis Sittenfeld’s latest book, and wanted to share. Let me preface this with: I loved Prep and count it among my top 10 favorite books. Her second title, The Man of My Dreams, was decent, from what I remember (although the fact that I don’t much remember it speaks volumes, perhaps).

Anyway, her new book imagines the life of Laura Bush, from birth through present day. It’s fictionalized, of course, and the woman has a different name, but all the biographical details are the same, down to the horrific (and wrong) events of the 2000 election. Take a look at what the NYT has to say.

I will totally be reading this.
