Curtis Sittenfeld's Rodham will be the topic of conversation in an event with Hadley Freeman
Curtis Sittenfeld's new novel Rodham.

** Every Ticket includes a copy of Rodham**

What if Hillary hadn’t married Bill? How might things have turned out for them both, for America, and for the world?

Join us for this one-off exclusive online live event to celebrate the launch of Rodham, Curtis Sittenfeld’s much anticipated new novel which reimagines Hillary Clinton’s life, had she chosen a different path.

Delve into the mind of the bestselling novelist who pulls no punches in her scathing and hilarious indictments of the American middle classes. Her books include American Wife, Prep, and the acclaimed short story collection You Think It, I’ll Say It. Curtis will be in conversation with Guardian journalist Hadley Freeman, and you’ll also have the chance to ask your questions. 

Every ticket comes with a copy of Rodham delivered directly to your door! In Rodham, 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.
