Autumn Stephens Goes to White House with FEISTY FIRST LADIES

Related: Viva Editions, Feisty First Ladies, biography, Autumn Stephens

Move over Michelle Obama, Mary Todd Lincoln's back. If you thought you were a fashionista, you've got nothing on Mary Lincoln, who was quite a clothes horse herself, and perhaps the first shopaholic in the White House. As Autumn Stephens says, "Today, maniacal Mary Lincoln would be the self-dramatizing star of some Beltway twelve-step program, or popping Prozac like miniature petit fours, or holding an Oprah audience in thrall with tales of how an ungrateful nation did her wrong."

Feisty First Ladies
And Other Unforgettable White House Women
By Autumn Stephens

Part irreverant portrait gallery, part exuberant exposé, Feisty First Ladies and Other Unforgettable White House Women introduces a remarkable array of wild women-from first First Lady Martha Washington to hot hostess Dolley Madison and Harvard-educated Michelle Obama. Author Autumn Stephens also dishes on daughters like Reagan rebel Patti Davis, Tricia Nixon, Susan Ford, and Mary Cheney, who were the tabloid fodder of their day.

Laugh out loud funny, and filled with amazing stranger-than-fiction facts from our American history, Feisty First Ladies and Other Unforgettable White House Women is a journey into the realm of the eclectic sisterhood whose outrageous words and deeds have rocked the fusty old foundations of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and the nation!

In our opinion, Sally Field is a shoe-in for the Oscar for FLOTUS, Mary Todd Lincoln. As she said herself in a USA Today article, "I didn't think anyone else could play it. It takes my amount of miles in the saddle to be able to do the complexities of this person." The Obamas even gave the film a thumbs-up after their own private screening.
