. . . And His Lovely Wife: A Campaign Memoir from the Woman Beside the Man by Connie Schultz

Writing with warmth and humor, Connie Schultz reveals the rigors, joys, and absolute madness of a new marriage at midlife and campaigning with her husband, Sherrod Brown, now the junior senator from Ohio. She describes the chain of events leading up to Sherrods decision to run for the Senate (he would not enter the fray without his wifes unequivocal support), and her own decision to step down from writing her Pulitzer Prize-winning column during the course of one of the nations most intensely watched races. She writes about the moment her friends in the press became not so friendly, the constant campaign demands on her marriage and family life, and a personal tragedy that came out of the blue. Schultz also shares insight into the challenges of political life: dealing with audacious bloggers, ruthless adversaries, and political divas; battling expectations of a political wife; and the shock of having staffers young enough to be her children suddenly directing her every move. Connie Schultz is passionate and outspoken about her opinions-in other words, every political consultants nightmare, and every readers dream. [Schultz is] a Pulitzer Prize--winning journalist with a mordant wit. . . . The [campaign memoir] genre takes on new life. -The Washington Post Book World With her characteristic wit and reportorial thoroughness, [Schultz] describes the behind-the-scenes chaos, frustration and excitement of a political campaign and the impact it has on a candidates family. -Minneapolis Star Tribune Witty and anecdotal, whether read by a Democrat or a Republican. -Deseret Morning News Frank and feisty . . . a spunky tribute to the survival of onewomans spirit under conditions in which it might have been squelched. -The Columbus Dispatch
