Philosopher and cultural critic Susan Bordo’s book The Destruction of Hillary Clinton carries the distinction of being the first narrative to examine and attempt to answer the question many have been asking since the 2016 election: How did an extraordinarily well-qualified, experienced and admired candidate come to be seen as untrustworthy? Bordo unpacks the narrative. As Katha Pollitt once wrote of Bordo’s work “When Bordo deconstructs something, it stays deconstructed.” Full disclosure for this interview: Susan Bordo and Binnie Klein are sisters, so this is not the usual “what went wrong” autopsy; rather it’s a behind-the-scenes look at the writing of this book.
