We all know the story of Hillary Rodham and Bill Clinton, don’t we? We all know that HR went onto become HRC, First Lady to Bill, and the person who came in second at the 2016 presidential election.
Right? Well, what Rodham by Curtis Sittenfeld imagines is a world in which that doesn’t happen.
A world in which Hillary doesn’t marry Bill.
A world in which her life isn’t defined by the man that she married.
This overwhelmingly empathetic novel is a work of political fiction, an engrossing page-turner and thrilling read that asks the simple question: What if? Trust us, pick this book up and you won’t be able to put it down.
Curtis Sittenfeld is the bestselling author of Prep, Sisterland, Eligible and American Wife.
Born in Cincinnati – which would go on to become the setting for her Pride and Prejudice retelling Eligible – and now based in St Louis, Sittenfeld also writes short stories and non-fiction for publications including The New York Times and Glamour.
