Book Review

"Every evening for 8 years, at his request, President Obama was given ten handpicked letters written by ordinary American citizens -- the unfiltered voice of a nation -- from his Office of Presidential Correspondence. He was the first President to interact daily with constituent mail and to archive it in its entirety. The letters affected not only the President and his policies, but also the deeply committed people who were tasked with opening and reading the millions of pleas, rants, thank yous, and apologies that landed in the White House mailroom. Based on the popular New York Times article, 'To Obama,' Laskas now interviews the letter writers themselves and the White House staff who sifted through the powerful, moving, and incredibly intimate narrative of America during the Obama years emerges
