Author: Steven Levingston
Barack and Joe is an intimate look at the making of the powerful partnership between former US President Barack Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden.
Based on original interviews, media reports, memoirs and other accounts, Barack and Joe is the first book to tell the full story of their historic relationship and its substantial impact on the Obama presidency and its legacy.
Author Steven Levingston “does a great job recounting the veepstakes process of Obama picking Biden to be his running mate,” said a review in goodreads.com.
In a review for The New York Times, Jason Zengerle said that Levingston “spends much of Barack and Joe dwelling on the public-facing aspect of — and public response to — their ‘bromance. He quotes from both men’s Twitter and Instagram accounts; late-night hosts, cable news gasbags and Internet meme-makers are all frequently cited.”
Levingston is the non-fiction book editor of the Washington Post and author of Kennedy and King, Little Demon in the City of Light and The Kennedy Baby.
