Rodham by Curtis Sittenfeld

Review by Jessica Peterson White

With Rodham, Minneapolis author Curtis Sittenfeld brings us a very different take on speculative fiction by inviting us to wonder: what if Hillary hadn’t married Bill Clinton? It’s part steamy beach read, part insightful dive into the struggles of women in politics, and part hilarious and nauseating rewriting of recent American history. Rodham is gripping, a slightly guilty pleasure, but also a hopeful read for anyone wanting to take an imaginative leap to a very different political and personal landscape for some of our most public figures – and for America.
