Curtis Sittenfeld is back with her biggest novel yet.
The bestselling author of Prep and Eligible won raves over a decade ago for American Wife, her political novel loosely based on the life of Laura Bush. Now she returns with another account of an ambitious political woman, only this time even higher-profile—and more revisionist. Her buzzy new book Rodham, one of the summer’s biggest titles, imagines the life of our most famous First Lady as if she never married Bill Clinton. Join Sittenfeld as she talks with Entertainment Weekly’s David Canfield about writing in the voice of an American icon, her 15-year career in publishing, and what the summer books season might look like in the COVID-19 era.
