Hillary Clinton to publish new memoir this fall

Hillary Clinton will publish a new book — her 11th — on Sept. 17, publisher Simon & Schuster announced Tuesday.

The memoir, “Something Lost, Something Gained: Reflections on Life, Love, and Liberty,” will arrive just seven weeks before Election Day. It will be both personal and political, reflecting on her marriage, friendships and the process of aging, as well as offering her views on topics ranging from Russia to the upcoming U.S. election. Clinton will also narrate the audiobook version. Her tour for the book will include stops in Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago and Washington.

“The book reads like you’re sitting down with your smartest, funniest, most passionate friend over a long meal,” Simon & Schuster editor in chief Priscilla Painton said in a news release. “This is the Hillary Americans have come to know and love: candid, engaged, humorous, self-deprecating — and always learning.”

According to the publisher, “Something Lost, Something Gained” will also share Clinton’s experiences canoeing with an ex-Nazi who wants to deprogram white supremacists and evacuating women from Afghanistan at the end of the war.

Her most recent memoir — “What Happened,” her account of the 2016 election — sold 300,000 copies in its first week, The Washington Post’s Ron Charles reported in 2017. In his review for The Post, David Weigel described the book as “raw,” “bracing,” and by turns “bitter” and “corny”: “a meditation on powerful women, a test run for the speeches Clinton will give for the rest of her life.”

Clinton has also co-written a mystery novel with Louise Penny and several children’s books, including two co-authored with her daughter, Chelsea.

Former president Bill Clinton will also release a memoir this fall: “Citizen,” which delves into his post-presidential life, will be published Nov. 17 by Knopf.
