Like New. 0375503447 Vanity Fair writer Gail Sheehy's engrossing biography of Hillary Clinton is a refreshing departure from the political hit jobs that have appeared elsewhere in print. That's not to say Hillary's Choice is a pro-Clinton book--Hillary herself would probably bristle at reading it, and her husband ("The story of the Clinton presidency has always been the story of the Clinton marriage," writes Sheehy) comes off as a bright but demented cad. Yet Hillary's Choice is broadly sympathetic and often nonjudgmental at crucial moments. Sheehy writes very little about public policy, but includes plenty of pop psychologizing. She suggests that the president is a sex addict afflicted by what "a highly qualified mental health professional who works too close to the White House to be identified" calls "dissociative identities"--what used to be known as "multiple personalities ... a sum of various identities that have been split off at some time in the past." And the president gets away with so much in his personal life because Hillary has become his unwitting enabler: "Every addict or alcoholic needs one. The enabler is usually an intimate of the addicted person who allows him to persist in self-destructive behavior by making excuses or helping him avoid the consequences of his actions." That describes Sheehy's Hillary perfectly: a woman apparently ignorant of her husband's several flings in the White House before Monica Lewinsky came along, and then willfully deceived by the president's lies until just hours before his momentous grand-jury testimony. Theirs is a mother-son relationship in which true love must negotiate its way through astonishingly difficult periods. That's not a formula for how marriage ought to work, but it has nevertheless helped this ultimate power couple achieve enormous success. Hillary's Choice is full of on-the-record and background interviews, all assembled in an absorbing narrative. Writes Sheehy: "The saga of Bill and Hillary, with its echoes of Eleanor and Franklin, or Tracy and Hepburn with undertones of Bonnie and Clyde, is animated by melodrama, high passion, narrow escapes, and knock-down-drag-outs." And it comes alive in this biography of the most enigmatic woman of our time. --John J. Miller From Library Journal Might Hillary's Passages be a better title? Celebrated author Sheehy has been tracking the First Lady for seven years since publishing a piece in Vanity Fair called "What Hillary Wants." Perhaps now we'll get an answer. Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc. The New York Times Book Review, Gail Collins ...a handy compendium of all the previous reporting on the Clintons' marriage, and people who have been trapped in a mine for the last few years might find it useful. But for most of the country, reading Hillary's Choice will provide a fuller insight into the meaning of Clinton fatigue. From AudioFile At a time when her independent political career is coming into sharp focus, this biography of Hillary Rodham Clinton is both timely and poignant. Gail Sheehy gathers insightful character studies and commentary from interviews with many expected and unexpected people in the first lady's life. She pulls together a unique work that informs listeners while letting them in on the personal roots of this dynamic woman. Sheehy's bold speaking voice is a good match for the subject of her text. Although there are moments when she even sounds like the first lady, Sheehy also maintains a journalist's distance, lending an even more authentic feel to the audiobook. R.A.P. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine-- Copyright ? AudioFile, Portland, Maine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Review "With firsthand knowledge and first-rate reporting, Gail Sheehy meticulously peels back the layers of this woman we have so barely understood: revered and reviled First Lady, vulnerable First Victim, flawed tactician, inspired candidate. You cannot know Hillary Rodham Clinton without reading this book." --Lynn Sherr, ABC News "Gail Sheehy is a master at defining the personal as political and the political as personal. Hillary's Choice is a compelling portrait of a marriage." --Richard Reeves, author of President Kennedy: Profile of Power Review "With firsthand knowledge and first-rate reporting, Gail Sheehy meticulously peels back the layers of this woman we have so barely understood: revered and reviled First Lady, vulnerable First Victim, flawed tactician, inspired candidate. You cannot know Hillary Rodham Clinton without reading this book." --Lynn Sherr, ABC News "Gail Sheehy is a master at defining the personal as political and the political as personal. Hillary's Choice is a compelling portrait of a marriage." --Richard Reeves, author of President Kennedy: Profile of Power Book Description This is the story of a woman and a marriage, both so famous the world over, we think we know everything there is to know. But Hillary's Choice renders America's First Lady fully human for the first time. Gail Sheehy uncovers the lifelong imprint of Hillary's drillmaster father and the frustrated mother who taught her to bottle up her emotions and who took subversive pleasure in teaching her only daughter how to fight like a man. We listen in as Hillary describes, in letters to a college pen pal, her dreams of becoming a star and her depression when trying to choose an identity. And we meet her first love, the handsome Georgetown man who melted her midwestern puritanism but lost her to the more ambitious Bill Clinton. We see the arc of Hillary's life through her headstrong choices: as a Yale Law School graduate who chooses to marry an Arkansas boy, thinking she will get him elected to Con-gress and take him back to Washington; as a professional wife who chooses to abandon her own career dream so she can raise a "boy" to be a president; as a woman betrayed once too often who finally confronts her husband and makes the deal that will determine their future. Sheehy has been observing Hillary Clinton for seven years, talking to her informally and writing about her in Vanity Fair. The biographical portrait that emerges is a tour de force of hard reporting shaped by the intimate contour of the author's unique insights. The story of the Clinton presidency has always been the story of the Clinton marriage. Delving deep into a relationship that is both supportive and destructive, Sheehy answers the constantly asked question "Why does she stay with him?" How has Hillary preserved her spirit through repeated cycles of Clinton's seduction, betrayal, and repentance? Sheehy peels back the layers of public masks and private denials, showing through one vivid scene after another how Hillary became addicted to Bill, and how desperately Bill depended on Hillary to teach him how to fight and to bring him back again and again from the political dead. Power and shame shift violently from Hillary to Bill and back again as Sheehy deconstructs their embattled co-presidency. Hillary's Choice reveals much more: the one serious threat to the Clinton marriage, when Bill fell in love with a woman unlike any of his others; Hillary's symbiotic relationship with political guru Dick Morris; the real reason Clinton couldn't help Hillary pass health care reform; the source of Hillary's crippling hostility toward the press; how Hillary escaped the snare of Ken Starr; how she endured, and capitalized on, the miseries of the Monica year; why she polarizes women; and why she chose to seek her own political voice. Hillary's Choice brings this tempestuous tale up to date, following Hillary's rebirth as a newly confident woman in her "Flaming Fifties" who is ready to take control of her life. The Clintons' startling role reversal in middle life maintains the suspense: Will Hillary succeed as a retail politician with Bill in the wings as her strategist? Will their marriage survive his postpresidential blues and her possible rejection by her new neighbors in New York? Gail Sheehy's saturation reporting and candid interviews with hundreds of people--many of them fresh sources with intimate knowledge of Hillary--flesh out the complexities and contradictions that drive one of the most extraordinary political figures of our time. Download Description Since the Starr report, the nature of the relationship between Bill and Hillary Clinton has been more hotly disputed than ever. Are they a cold, calculating partnership? A sex addict and his enabler? A long-suffering, lamp-throwing wife and her straying husband? Evacuating the private saga of America's most public marriage, Gail Sheehy takes the Clintons from the moment their eyes met (in school) through the incalculable humiliation of the Lewinsky affair and the drama of the impeachment battle. Sheehy reveals the power shifts, the passion, and the price Hillary has paid as well as her choices and their consequences.

As a political journalist and contributing editor to Vanity Fair, Ms. Sheehy has written character studies of national and world figures, including Bill and Hillary Clinton, Bob and Elizabeth Dole, George Bush, Mikhail Gorbachev, Margaret Thatcher, Saddam Hussein, Newt Gingrich, and Gary Hart. The mother of two daughters, she divides her time between New York and California, where she lives with her husband, editor and educator Clay Felker. Excerpt. ? Reprinted by permission.

What is the source of this inner core of steel? Hillary was born an adult, according to her mother, Dorothy Rodham. While that is surely an exaggeration, Dorothy's daughter never seemed to lack discipline or drive. Once she settled on a track, she stuck to it like the wheels of an express train.
