Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Matriarch will be read, and worth reading, for a long time to come." -Wall Street Journal

"Susan Page has given us an insightful and engaging portrait of a remarkable American. Wife to one President, mother to another, Barbara Bush was fascinating and complicated, and this absorbing biography brings the woman George H.W. Bush called 'the Silver Fox' to vivid life." -Jon Meacham, Pulitzer Prize-winning and #1 New York Times bestselling author of Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey of George Herbert Walker Bush

"Formidable and fearless, candid and sharp, Barbara Bush was among the most interesting people of our time. Susan Page's intimate biography covers both the triumphs and tribulations that made her so fascinating and beloved." -Walter Isaacson, Pulitzer Prize finalist and #1 New York Times bestselling author of Leonardo da Vinci, Steve Jobs, and Einstein

"What a fascinating read! By giving Page access to her diaries and agreeing to long interviews, Barbara Bush finally reveals the person behind the pearls. And she turns out to be one of the most interesting and influential women of the twentieth century." -Cokie Roberts, New York Times bestselling author of Ladies of Liberty and political commentator for NPR and ABC News

"Except for Eleanor Roosevelt, first-rate biographies of First Ladies are rare. Susan Page's volume on Barbara Bush is an impressive exception. It is a beautifully written and informative study of not only Barbara Bush, but also the presidential administrations of her husband and son." -Robert Dallek, Pulitzer Prize finalist and New York Times bestselling author of An Unfinished Life: John F. Kennedy, 1917-1963

"Barbara Bush was the wife of one president and the mother of another, but as Susan Page shows, was far more interesting than that. In the nick of time, Page managed to interview Mrs. Bush at length, gain access to her diaries, and acquire other information that many earlier authors did not have in order to bring us this highly readable portrait, which expands our understanding of this strong, decisive woman, whose influence spanned an era." -Michael Beschloss, New York Times bestselling author of Presidents of War

"Highly recommend!" -Gayle King, CBS This Morning

"""Insightful, touching, personal...this exceptionally readable Bush biography [is] unlike any you will read.""" -USA Today

"""The book has lots and lots of new information. Buy the book. You will enjoy it.""" -"Greta Van Susteren"

"""The book offers an unprecedented look at the life of one of America's most influential women.""" "KBTX TV"

"An incredible look at one of the most powerful First Ladies in history. Go buy The Matriarch now." -Brad Meltzer, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The First Conspiracy

"""Touching and surprising.""" -"Dana Perino"

"...Richly researched, with so many new details." -Norah O'Donnell

"The Matriarch is the rare biography of a public figure that's not only beautifully written, but also shockingly revelatory." -The Atlantic

"Scoopy and insightful." -The New York Times

"A rich and empathetic portrait of a complicated, bright woman." -Barbara VanDenbugh, USA Today

"A remarkable portrait of a woman who, even while shunning the spotlight, had a lasting impact on this country." -Jennifer Palmieri

"""[A] highly readable portrait...Like the arc of her life itself, [Bush] created a bridge for first ladies that reached from traditional feminine pursuits to modern feminism. This definitive biography is a welcome contribution to our understanding of the complex role of presidential spouses.""" -The Washington Post

"Fascinating." -Wolf Blitzer
