Chozick takes us through the high and low lights of the most noxious and dramatic presidential election in American history. Chozick's candor and clear-eyed perspective--from her seat on the Hillary bus and reporting from inside the campaign's Brooklyn headquarters to her run-ins with Donald J. Trump--provide fresh intrigue and insights into the story we thought we all knew. This is the real story of what happened, with the kind of dishy, inside details that repeatedly surprise and enlighten. But Chasing Hillary is also the unusually personal and moving memoir of how Chozick came to understand Clinton not as an unknowable enigma and political animal, but as a complete, complex person, full of contradictions and forged in the crucible of political battles that had long predated Chozick's years covering her. And as Chozick gets engaged, married, buys an apartment, climbs the professional ladder, and inquires about freezing her eggs so she can have children after the 2016 campaign, she dives deeper into decisions Clinton had made at similar points in her early career. In the process, Chozick develops an intimate understanding of what drives Clinton, how she accomplished what no woman had before, and why she ultimately failed. Chozick also reveals how the social fissures in the electorate that drove angry voters to Trump and blindsided Clinton would unexpectedly bring out the tensions in Chozick's own life--between the red state she came from and the blue state she ended up in, and her desire to climb in her career as a woman but be treated no differently than a man.
