The omnipresent Hillary Clinton has added an interview with The New York Times Book Review to her list of media appearances, and she name checks quite a few authors and titles.Hillary and I live on two different planets. I have George W's book, but that is it, as far as this list goes. I am familiar with some of the authors she mentions, but none of the books beyond Decision Points .-RW
Books on her nightstand:
"The Goldfinch" by Donna Tartt
"Mom & Me & Mom" by Maya Angelou
"Missing You" by Harlan Coben.
The last great books she read:
"The Hare with Amber Eyes" by Edmund de Waal
"The Signature of All Things" by Elizabeth Gilber
"Citizens of London" by Lynne Olson
"A Suitable Boy" by Vikram Seth.
She says she'll read anything by Laura Hillenbrand, Walter Isaacson, Barbara Kingsolver, John le Carre, John Grisham, Hillary Mantel, Toni Morrison, Anna Quindlen and Alice Walker. She's embarassed to say she hasn't read Proust's "In Search Of Lost Time."
Oh, and: She says she has George W. Bush's "Decision Points" and Sen. John McCain's "Faith Of My Fathers" on her bookshelf.
