美国前总统奥巴马卸任后发表首部作品《应许之地》

作者: 发布于:2020-12-09 08:02
Barack Obama is well on his way to becoming the bestselling author of the year.   美国前总统贝拉克·奥巴马行将成为年度畅销书作家。
    It is a title previously1 bestowed2 on his wife, Michelle Obama, whose book "Becoming" rocketed to the top of the charts in 2018.   Now the former president's new memoir3, "A Promised Land," is breaking records for the book's publisher, Crown, an imprint4 of Penguin5 Random6 House.   "A Promised Land" offers Obama's take on some of his most notable moments in office, from wrestling a global financial crisis to passing the Affordable7 Care Act.   The first of two volumes, this initial 768-page release is what Obama described in a September statement as "an honest accounting8 of my presidential campaign and my time in office, the key events and people who shaped it, my take on what I got right and the mistakes I made, and the political, economic, and cultural forces that my team and I had to confront then -- and that as a nation we are grappling with still."   The publisher has yet to announce the release date of the second volume.
