Slevin, a first time author who worked as a journalist for the Miami Herald and The Washington Post, examines Michelle Obama Life in and out of the White House in a new biography called, “Michelle Obama: A Life.”
When Karu Daniels asked Slevin what was his reason for writting the piece he replied that the 432 pages to what was a labor of love. In his eyes, the first lady was the perfect choice for his first book.
“I never wanted to write a book until I felt that I had something to say and until I had a story that excited me and Michelle Obama’s life is that story,” he told Daniels. “I thought she deserved a book where she is at the center of that narrative, where she is not just ‘Wife Of The More Famous Barack Obama.’”
