What if Hillary hadn’t married Bill Clinton? I started listening to Rodham yesterday. I was really intrigued by the above question. I am still on Chapter 1, which focuses on Hillary and Bill’s budding romance in the 1970s. It is a bit awkward but I read in a review that will pass as it moves into a more fictional story. The beginning sets the historical facts around Hillary’s early adulthood which is familiar to me as a reader, but it feels strange to hear the dialogue and sex scenes between Hillary and Bill when they were first dating. 😂 Maybe it comes off more strange because I am listening to it as an audiobook.

This incredible book by Curtis Sittenfeld is out today! A tour-de-force of contemporary fiction, reimagining the life of Hillary Rodham if she hadn’t married Bill Clinton. #Rodham is unforgettable and unputdownable, an examination of female ambition in a world ruled by men. It’s one of my favourite campaigns (and books) and I’m so excited for it to be out there in the world! ✨🥰
