A new biography is likely to reveal the details of US President Barack Obama relationship with an Australian woman in New York during 1980s.
Diaries of Genevieve Cook,daughter of an Australian diplomat,who was one of young Obamas girlfriends,are being carried in the forthcoming book Barack Obama: The Story that captures intimate details of his love life. Vanity Fair magazine carries diary extracts from the book.
The books author,David Maraniss,had access to Cooks diaries,and they shed light on the young Obamas character and personality.
Her memories range from the trivial to the controversial. Cook reveals that on Sundays Obama loved to do the newspaper crossword. She also recounted how he was deeply confused about his racial identity and felt like an imposter because he was so white. She claims that Obama decided that he needed to go black because it was best for him.
Im left wondering if Baracks reserve,etc is not just the time in his life,but,after all,emotional scarring that will make it difficult for him to get involved even after hes sorted his life through with age and experience, Cook wrote after breaking up with Obama in 1985.
