From the publisher

'This addictive novel is the SLIDING DOORS of American politics. Gripping' Stylist

'Startlingly good. One of my favourite writers' KATE ATKINSON
----------------------
'Awfully opinionated for a girl' is what they call Hillary as she grows up in her Chicago suburb.

Smart, diligent, and a bit plain, that's the general consensus. Then Hillary goes to college, and her star rises. At Yale Law School, she continues to be a leader - and catches the eye of driven, handsome and charismatic Bill. But when he asks her to marry him, Hillary gives him a firm No.

How might things have turned out for them, for America, for the world itself, if Hillary Rodham had really turned down Bill Clinton?

With her sharp but always compassionate eye, Sittenfeld explores the loneliness, moral ambivalence and iron determination that characterise the quest for high office, as well as the painful compromises demanded of female ambition in a world ruled by men.

'It ends up being a love letter to a type: the female intellectual, who is given none of the licence of her less talented male peers. At the end, I found myself saying Oh My God' Observer

'An explosive new book' Grazia
