What If Hillary Never Said Yes To Bill?

May 21, 2020

What is left to say about a woman who has faced endless scrutiny on the written page and the world's stage?

Hillary Clinton has been dissected in many books, including her own best-selling memoirs. Even more widespread is the media attention that has put her under the microscope, from her times in the governor's mansion to the White House and on the campaign trail. So, what drew a Cincinnati native and best-selling author to a work of speculative fiction about one of the world's most speculated-about women?

Today on Cincinnati Edition, we ask Curtis Sittenfeld just that about her new novel Rodham. In it, she imagines what Hillary's life would have been like if she never had said "yes" to Bill Clinton.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
