Our last Book Club took place months ago, early in Lockdown, so we are delighted that in this show Ann Ingle, Bernice Harrison and Niamh Towey are back to discuss our latest read. The book under discussion is Rodham by Curtis Sittenfeld, a political fantasy that imagines what life would have been like for Hillary Clinton had she turned down Bill Clinton's proposal of marriage. So it's a what if novel that imagines the life and times of Hill without Bill. Sittenfeld, the author of sharp, compassionate and always clever books such as American Wife, explores how life might have turned out for the Clintons, for America and for the world if these two political heavyweights had never got married. It's a lively discussion and as usual not everyone agrees with each other but we wouldn't want it any other way. We'll announce our next book soon, but until then enjoy this Book Club episode.
