When Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election to Donald Trump, many were left asking, “What happened?”
Clinton’s anticipated book about her failed campaign is set to hit book shelves on Sept.12 and it finally has a (very apt) title.
“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,” Clinton wrote in the book’s introduction.
The book will dig into allegations of Russian meddling in the election, Clinton’s own mistakes and the role sexism played in the campaign.
The book also promises to reveal “what it was like to run against Donald Trump,” whom Simon & Schuster describes as “an opponent who broke all the rules.”
“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,” according to the book’s description on Amazon. “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 OG “nasty woman” is about to get real in what the publishers called “her most personal memoir yet.”
