Since previous President Clinton left office in 2001, we were all trusting that he and Hillary would, as Barack and Michelle ought to, step away unobtrusively from open life and appreciate the life of retirement.Lamentably, that is not the situation. Rather, we’re past overexposed to the Clintons, as Hillary has now made two fizzled endeavors to wind up the president, and Bill has attempted to raise money for their slush support known as the Clinton Foundation.
Many people have been hoping that, with Hillary Clinton’s devastating loss in November, the Clintons would finally retire from the public eye. But that appears to not be true. Hillary has been making public speeches again, and now, Bill Clinton has just announced some new plans of his own.
Clinton said he is writing his first novel, alongside best-selling author James Patterson. The book, titled “The President is Missing”, will be released in June of 2018 and will be jointly published by Alfred A. Knopf and Hachette, Clinton and Patterson’s respective publishers.
So far, not much is known about the plot of the novel. While the fictional president will be at the center of the story, all that has been said so far is that it will be “a unique amalgam of intrigue, suspense and behind-the-scenes global drama from the highest corridors of power”.
For his part, Clinton has spoken enthusiastically about the book. “Working on a book about a sitting President – drawing on what I know about the job, life in the White House, and the way Washington works – has been a lot of fun,” he said in a statement. “And working with Jim has been terrific. I’ve been a fan of his for a very long time. “
Maybe composing this novel will keep Bill occupied while Hillary is away on her talking visits to raise money. In any case, this book might be a sort of chronicled fiction, however, will most likely have more truth in it than Bill’s indictment hearing in Congress!
