A funny novel of the first "First Husband," from an author who "writes in the grand tradition of such American humorists as Mark Twain and Will Rogers" (Library Journal). Guy Fox first encountered Clementine on the campus of Dingler College. She was running, stark naked, away from an on-campus protest and the police who were pursuing her. Guy and Clementine's romance wound through turbulent social movements of the '60s and '70s, all the way to Clementine's ascension to the Oval Office. As the nation's very first First Husband, Guy is privy to the surreal intricacies of presidential life, and he sets out to write a light and thoroughly uncontroversial memoir about his relationship with Clementine. But the First Hubby can't help but let some of his more mischievous qualities slip through into his book . . . The thoroughly charming First Hubby is an engrossing novel about politics, family, and the art of marriage that "offers an emphatic and romantic 'yes' to the question 'Can true love survive the Oval Office'?" (The New Yorker).
