Here, for the first time, Michelle Obama describes the early years of her marriage as she struggles to balance her work and family with her husband’s fast-moving political career.  She takes us inside their private debate over whether he should make a run for the presidency and her subsequent role as a popular but oft-criticized figure during his campaign.  Narrating with grace, good humor, and uncommon candor, she provides a vivid behind-the-scenes account of her family’s history-making launch into the global limelight as well as their life inside the White House over eight momentous years – as she comes to know her country and her country comes to know her.  Becoming is an intimate, powerful and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady, Michelle Obama and is now available here at House of Books.
