A revealing new look at America's first ladies

Mark Farkas on First Ladies

Former first lady Barbara Bush, who passed away in April, "liked the countdown clock so much that when the Bushes returned to Houston that October, she brought it with her. The late first lady Barbara Bush disliked President Donald Trump so much that she kept a jokingly gifted clock counting down to the end of his presidency by her bedside until the day she died, according to an excerpt of a new book about her. It sat on her bedside table, where she could see it every day. The new book set to be published next week was compiled from interviews with the Bush matriarch before her death last year as well as decades of diary entries from the former first lady.

The first lady of the United States is the hostess of the White House. The first lady is not an elected position; it carries no official duties and receives no salary. Nonetheless, she attends many official ceremonies and functions of state either along with or in place of the president. Traditionally, the first lady does not hold outside employment while occupying the office, [1] although Eleanor Roosevelt earned money writing and giving lectures, but gave most of it to charity. The Office of the First Lady is also in charge of all social and ceremonial events of the White House, and is a branch of the Executive Office of the President.

Andy Ochs has written an extremely unique book. It is part historical-ish, part biographical-ish, part memoir-ish, part travelogue-ish — and completely delightful! By his own admission, the author was given not only a warm welcome wherever he went, but access to dozens of rooms of memorabilia usually tucked away in vaults or behind the velvet ropes. And also, by his own admission, he had the special experiences of holding what they held and walking in precious footsteps. If Andy Ochs was not born with the history gene, after this journey, he has had one helluva transplant!
