Besides hanging out in the woods, getting loopy on Chardonnay, being a grandma, and wondering WTF just happened to her plans to be president, Hillary Clinton has been faced with something so incredibly foreign to her, she’s taking full advantage of it—downtime.
Hill hit a conference at the American Library Association conference on Tuesday, where she told the audience that she found the most solace in books following her loss to Donald Trump. She said she found herself “going back to the familiar experience of losing myself in books.”
What’s she reading? Not what you think.
In the last few months, Hillary says she’s “finished Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan novels, I devoured mysteries by Louise Penny, Donna Leon, Jacqueline Winspear, Charles Todd, she said. I reread old favorites like Henri Nouwen’s The Return of the Prodigal Son, the poetry of Maya Angelou and Mary Oliver. I was riveted by The Jersey Brothers and a new book of essays called The View From Flyover Country, which turned out to be especially relevant in the midst of our current health-care debate.”
Ahhh, Hillary in a plush chair, cold glass of wine in hand, lost in a book.
