As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Michelle Obama Releases Cover of Upcoming Book

She looks pretty good! A lot better than the painting of her in the National Gallery.

“Becoming.” Suitably pretentious. Whatever. The book will be out November 13.

From Mrs. Obama’s press office.

“I’m thrilled to share with all of you the cover for BECOMING. The process of writing this book has been so personally meaningful and illuminating for me. As I prepare to share BECOMING this fall, I hope you’ll also think about your own story, and trust that it will help you become whoever you aspire to be. Your story is what you have, what you will always have. It is something to own.”

In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, BECOMING is an unusually intimate reckoning from a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations—and whose story inspires us to do the same.

At the time of publication, Mrs. Obama will embark on a U.S. and international book tour, with details to be announced at a later date.

The print edition will carry a suggested list price of $32.50 in the U.S. and $40.00 in Canada and the digital edition will be priced at $14.99 in the U.S. and $18.99 in Canada.

  1. “She looks pretty good!”

    Her ugliness on the inside was revealed countless times. And her ego far exceeds any, actual accomplishments.

    Pass.

  2. Gak! Haven’t we put up with her moaning & complaining long enough now? They BOTH need to go away & shut the heck up !

  3. Will she tall about all the subtle plastic surgery that remade her face during the White House years? That’s certainly a becoming journey that she went through.

    I don’t know what it is with the Obamas’ fixation on stories, lifting up stories, telling stories, etc. I guess it puts a frame of purpose and resolution on the aimless mess that many lives really are.

    For uplifters of “the people,” this family is certainly cashing in big time. The Princesses Obama are set for life, too.

  4. She can’t even make up her mind on how to paint her eyebrows on. Why does she think she is so important?Her eyebrows go from thick to thin and back.

  5. As usual, no class whatsoever. I’m certainly no prude, but that one shoulder top and that pose are kind of odd for a former First Lady. But, then again, she has always been nothing but a wannabe celeb.
