Last week word suddenly emerged that Carl Bernstein’s long-awaited biography of Hillary Clinton would appear, in a surpise, on June 19. This would handily beat a long-scheduled bio by New York Times reporters Jeff Gerth and Don Van Natta Jr.
Little, Brown & Company has now moved up from late-August to June 19 the publication of the Times’ reporters’ ?Her Way: The Hopes and Ambitions of Hillary Rodham Clinton.” This matches the arrival of Bernstein’s Knopf book, ?A Woman in Charge: The Life of Hillary Rodham Clinton.” Will Knopf now act again?
The Gerth-Van Natta book is still listed with an August 28 release date at amazon.com. The description for the book includes the following:
“Drawing upon myriad new sources and previously undisclosed documents, HER WAY shows us how, like many women of her generation, Hillary Rodham Clinton tempered a youthful idealism with the
realities of corporate America and big-league politics. It takes readers from the dorm rooms at Wellesley to the courthouses of Arkansas and Washington; to the White House and role as First Lady like none other; inside the back rooms of the Senate, where she expertly navigates the
political and legislative shoals; to her $4 million mansion in Washington, where she presides over an unparalleled fundraising machine; and to her war room, from which she orchestrates ferocious attacks against her critics.
“Throughout her career, she has been alternately helped and hindered by her marriage to Bill Clinton. HER WAY unravels the mysteries of their political partnership–one of the most powerful and enigmatic in American history. It also explains why Hillary is such a polarizing figure. And more than any other book, it reveals what her ultimate hopes and ambitions are–for herself and for America.”
