This month we are reading 'Becoming' by Michelle Obama. When Isabel Wilkerson reviewed this memoir for the New York Times (December 6 2018), she found it 'refined and forthright, gracefully written and at times laugh-out-loud funny... One of Obama’s strengths is her ability to look back not from the high perch of celebrity or with the inevitability of hindsight but with the anxieties of the uncertain.... she never takes any of it for granted. On the contrary, her tone is one of wonderment as to how this all happened. This gives the book’s first half, in particular, covering the part of her life we know least about, an unexpected suspense.'
