Michelle, by Liza Mundy, is the first comprehensive biography of Michelle Obama. In the book, Washington Post staff writer Liza Mundy offers insight into our new first lady.

Drawing on hundreds of interviews with Michelle’s friends, family, former co-workers, classmates, numerous detractors and even Michelle herself, Mundy supplies a deeply reported, balanced portrait of the woman making history alongside Barack Obama.

With her husband’s historic election, Michelle Obama is officially the first African-American First Lady of the United States. In January, she’ll move her family into the White House and inevitably will set a new tone for what the First Family will be.
