Clintons Trying Novel Approach to Stay Relevant

Annoying author James Patterson is teaming up with Bill Clinton to write a thriller called The President is Missing. Due out in summer of 2018.

The novel will be "informed by insider details that only a President can know," the publishers said in a statement provided to Publishers Weekly and AP. Clinton said: "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."

"Working with President Clinton has been the highlight of my career, and having access to his first-hand experience has uniquely informed the writing of this novel," Patterson said in the statement.

The President is Missing will be Clinton's first work of fiction, apart from his marital vows, court depositions, and grand jury testimony, as well as most of his presidency.

I might have added that last part.

Meanwhile, while Hillary Clinton is not involved in producing a novel, she is, for some reason, the subject of one: A bestselling novelist I never heard of (but don't hold that against him) is writing a novel about the nonintriguing question that none of us except Hillary and Huma Abedin have asked, What If Hillary had never married Bill Clinton?

Random House announced Monday that Curtis Sittenfeld will tell the story from the point of view of Hillary Rodham. In real life, the former first lady did turn down Bill Clinton's marriage proposals at first before agreeing to marry. In the novel, not yet titled, she turns down Clinton once and for all, then goes on with her life.

No release date was announced.

That's fine -- no release date was wanted.

By the way, that's not the only What If Hillary Clinton alt-history being written:

Sci-fi writer William Gibson is writing a novel about Hillary Clinton in which he imagines that she won the presidential election.

William Gibson is as culturally relevant now as Kajagoogoo, and for much the same reason -- he invented a silly word.
