US first lady comes under fire in new book

White House criticises publication for its "over-dramatised" portrayal of Michelle Obama.

    US first ladies have always lived under the media spotlight and Michelle Obama, the wife of the country's president, has enjoyed mostly good press.

    But a controversial new book is drawing criticism over its scathing portrayal of the first lady. The White House has dismissed the book as an over-dramatisation.
