內容簡介

每天,美國總統歐巴馬都會接到成千上萬市井小民寄來的的信。
每晚,他睡前都會固定讀10封。


《致歐巴馬》寫的是美國人民如何看待他們的這位總統。也是一本國家的日記。
作者訪問歐巴馬,也訪問在他任內,親眼目睹百萬封請願、感謝、咒罵、道歉信抵達收發室的幕僚們。


這些信來自百樣人。
佩姬,一位超愛國的老奶奶。認為總統正把國家帶向社會主義制度,建議他該好好讀讀《美國憲法》。
比爾,一輩子死忠共和黨員。在遇到一位從薩爾瓦多惡名昭彰的黑幫底下逃出的男孩後,對移民政策態度大為轉變。
7歲的喬登,即將被領養。感謝總統賜給他平安。
詹姆士,2016年大選公布那天,馬上寫信來叫總統快點打包。


出於感謝、出於失望,他們寫信給歐巴馬。
帶著憤怒、帶著恐懼、或是尊敬,他們需要人傾聽聲音。


《致歐巴馬》帶你近距離看歐巴馬,以及他和美國人民間的羈絆與關係。



Every day, President Obama received ten thousand letters from ordinary American citizens. Every night, he read ten of them before going to bed. This is the story of the ways in which they shaped his presidency and together combine to reveal the diary of a nation. In To Obama, Jeanne Marie Laskas interviews President Obama, the letter-writers themselves and the White House staff who were witness to the millions of pleas, rants, thank-yous and apologies that landed in the mailroom during the Obama years. There is Peggy, a patriotic grandmother who thinks the President is trying to lead the country into socialism and recommends that he read the Constitution; Bill, a lifelong Republican whose attitude towards immigration reform was transformed when he met a boy who escaped MS-13 gang leaders in El Salvador; Jordan, a seven-year-old about to be adopted, who wants to thank the President for keeping him safe; James, who on the morning after the 2016 election results writes to tell the President to start packing; and Marnie, whose response from the President motivates her to become superintendent of the school district that once laid her off. They wrote to Obama out of gratitude and desperation, in their darkest times of need, with anger, fear and respect. To Obama is an intimate look at one man's relationship with the American people, and at a time when love and empathy intersected with politics in the White House.
