What Happened by Hillary Rodham Clinton

A TIME MAGAZINE BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR AND NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK

“In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I’ve often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net. Now I’m letting my guard down.” —Hillary Rodham Clinton, from the introduction of What Happened

For the first time, Hillary Rodham Clinton reveals what she was thinking and feeling during one of the most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections in history. Now free from the constraints of running, Hillary takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules. This is her most personal memoir yet.

In these pages, she describes what it was like to run against Donald Trump, the mistakes she made, how she has coped with a shocking and devastating loss, and how she found the strength to pick herself back up afterward. With humor and candor, she tells readers what it took to get back on her feet—the rituals, relationships, and reading that got her through, and what the experience has taught her about life. She speaks about the challenges of being a strong woman in the public eye, the criticism over her voice, age, and appearance, and the double standard confronting women in politics.

She lays out how the 2016 election was marked by an unprecedented assault on our democracy by a foreign adversary. By analyzing the evidence and connecting the dots, Hillary shows just how dangerous the forces are that shaped the outcome, and why Americans need to understand them to protect our values and our democracy in the future.

The election of 2016 was unprecedented and historic. What Happened is the story of that campaign and its aftermath—both a deeply intimate account and a cautionary tale for the nation.

The 2016 Democratic presidential contender indicts everyone responsible for her stunning defeat in this rancorous memoir. Clinton names many culprits: FBI director James Comey, whose late-October resurrection of the investigation of Clinton's emails sent her poll numbers tumbling; Russia's computer hackers and anti-Clinton fake news and social media operators; Green Party candidate Jill Stein for skimming off left-leaning voters in key states; the press for harping on her minor transgressions while downplaying her opponent's scandals; and American voters for choosing tweeted anger over sensible platforms. Clinton's retelling of the race often reads like campaign literature, with glossy montages of policy proposals, inspirational portraits of herself as an icon of women's empowerment, and cameos from supporters like "Kristin in Dearborn" and "Katy from Bellevue." Clinton's campaign narrative is often riveting—her portrayal of Trump's sinister physical demeanor in debates is a gem ("Now we were on a small stage, and no matter where I walked, he followed me closely, staring at me, making faces")—but her sense of entitlement clouds her analysis, and she doesn't grapple with the appeal of his message on issues of immigration and trade. The lack of serious reflection on how her own campaign and proposals might have fallen short makes the book a telling epitaph for Clinton's campaign. (Sept.)
