Michelle Obama’s much-anticipated memoir, Becoming, was released worldwide at the end of November to much acclaim. In the 421-page book, the former American First Lady reveals very personal information such as suffering a miscarriage and using in vitro fertilization to become pregnant with her two daughters. But her book is also a fascinating political memoir. Michelle Obama, who said she wanted her readers to see how the highs and lows shaped her character, said that her story was the “quintessential American story.” Michelle Obama is in Paris to present her book on 5 December, and the 4,000 tickets for the event sold out in less than 24 hours.
