A vacationing President Barack Obama seems to be in search of drama, passion and intrigue _ at least in his reading material.
The White House says Obama bought two books at a Martha's Vineyard shop on Friday and brought three others from Washington for his 10-day stay.
One new book is "The Bayou Trilogy," a collection of crime novels by Daniel Woodrell set in Louisiana swampland. The other is "Rodin's Debutante" by Ward Just, a coming-of-age novel set in mid-20th- Century Chicago.
He arrived with Abraham Verghese's "Cutting for Stone," a novel about Ethiopian twins who journey to America; David Grossman's "To the End of the Land," a turbulent family drama set in Israel; and "The Warmth of Other Suns," an epic about America's great migration by Isabel Wilkerson.
