BITTER-SWEET: MY LIFE WITH OBASANJO
Bitter-Sweet: My Life with Obasanjo is an unusual autobiography. Written by Oluremi Obasanjo, former wife of Nigeria’s former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, it is the engaging story of a green-eyed girl who married a soldier and witnessed the extreme realities of tender love and brutal nonchalance, of dedication and indifference. It is the story of a wife and mother, a participant-observer who witnessed many things about the nature of power—its allure, use and misuse. Gripping and racy, it is a story you may not put down until you get to the last page. It is worthy addition to the growing literature of adventures in power.
