9780061231605: Clinton in Exile: A President Out of the White House

On January 20, 2001, the most powerful and arguably most ambitious man in the world relinquished the public stage, reluctantly, at the young age of fifty-four. Since then President Bill Clinton has moved in and out of the shadows of this "exile," leaving the millions who knew him to wonder: How has this man of such outsized talent and passions adjusted to leaving power?

Based on more than 150 interviews with the former president's friends, associates, and sometime enemies, Clinton in Exile takes readers from Clinton's last hours in office, through his indulgent personal life and well-publicized humanitarian efforts, to his front-of-camera and behind-the-scenes coordination of his wife's presidential campaign. This is a fascinating and textured portrait of one of the most towering, intriguing, and deeply controversial figures of our time.

About the Author:

Carol Felsenthal is a journalist whose in-depth magazine articles about numerous political figures have received wide acclaim. She is also the author of several highly praised biographies on such high-profile figures as Alice Roosevelt Longworth, S. I. Newhouse, Jr., and Katharine Graham. She lives in Chicago, Illinois.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* Postpresidency, Bill Clinton is as intriguing as ever. Having left office under the cloud of the Monica Lewinksi scandal and his controversial pardon of Marc Rich, Clinton spent a few lonely years in the new family home in Chappaqua, New York. He regained his bearings as a highly paid, extremely popular speaker and executive of a charitable foundation, with wider esteem outside the U.S. than at home. But journalist Felsenthal presents a man haunted by missed opportunities and obsessed with his legacy. She details struggles with his memoirs and his health. She also analyzes Clinton’s prickly relationship with Jimmy Carter, reconciliation with Al Gore, friendship with the first President Bush—solidified by their joint efforts to raise tsunami relief funds—and Clinton’s renewed appeal as a political advisor. His old friends complain that the new FOBs are among the uber-rich who can offer access to corporate jets and money to finance the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton. Felsenthal, who talked to more than 175 friends, associates, and enemies of Bill Clinton, offers insight into Clinton’s role in the 2000 presidential election and the current election, where he delicately attempts to help his wife without overshadowing her, even amid rumors of continued infidelity and speculation of his role in a Hillary administration. Completely fascinating. --Vanessa Bush
