#1663: Curtis Sittenfeld "Rodham" | The Book Show

This week on The Book Show, from the New York Times bestselling author of American Wife and Eligible, a novel that imagines a deeply compelling what-might-have-been: What if Hillary Rodham hadn’t married Bill Clinton?

In real life, Bill Clinton proposed to Hillary Rodham twice and she said no, until the third time. In author Curtis Sittenfeld’s new novel, Rodham, she says no the third time too. She goes her own way to become a law professor, and then a politician.
