Vogue has published an exclusive excerpt from Hillary Clinton’s new memoir Hard Choices, which comes out in June from Simon & Schuster.
The excerpt was timed for Mother’s Day and included a passage about the former secretary of state’s relationship with her own mother.
Mom loved mystery novels, Mexican food, Dancing with the Stars (we actually managed to get her to a taping of the show once), and most of all her grandchildren. My nephew Zach Rodham’s school was just five minutes away, and he came over many afternoons to visit her. Spending time with Fiona and Simon Rodham, her youngest grandchildren, was a precious delight for her. For Chelsea, her grandmother was one of the most important figures in her life. Mom helped Chelsea navigate the unique challenges of growing up in the public eye and, when she was ready, encouraged her to pursue her passion for service and philanthropy.
