Hillary Clinton is releasing a memoir of her presidential run called What Happened

Hillary Clinton is releasing one tell-all book we’ll be clambering to read this autumn.

The former presidential candidate, who lost out to Donald Trump in the US election in November, will be reflecting on exactly what went wrong in her campaign.

Entitled “What Happened”, Clinton will share her thoughts on the historic election which ended in her winning the popular vote but losing out in the all-important Electoral College.

“It’s the most personal book I’ve ever written. It will also give readers an idea of what it’s really like to run for president, especially if you’re a woman,” Clinton told a conference of the American Library Association this week.

Publishers Simon & Schuster told the Associated Press the book will “connect the dots” concerning Russian interference in the poll.

Clinton will also be revealing what it was like to run against Trump, and the sexism she encountered during her bid for the White House.

The memoir is set for a September 12 release, and Twitter users are eager to see what’s inside.

Although it was only announced by the publishers on Thursday, the book cover has already been subjected to the meme treatment.

The former US secretary of state kept a low profile in the months following her defeat, but was spotted a couple of times taking a stroll in the woods near her home in New York.
