Time Magazine Names Hillary Clinton’s ‘What Happened’ Top Non-Fiction Book of 2017


Time magazine on Tuesday released a list of 2017's best non-fiction books, and the winning author is the candidate who finished second in the 2016 presidential election.

Hillary Clinton's election memoir What Happened grabbed Time‘s No. 1 spot.

The blurb accompanying the book's position on the list reads, "Clinton offers one answer to the question that rang collectively from more than half the country on Nov. 9, 2016. The writing is frank, reflective and a piece of modern history."

Clinton tweeted that she was honored for her placement the list.

Clinton then tweeted pictures of her and supporters at book signings.

Ta-Nehisi Coates' We Were Eight Years in Power, about the Barack Obama presidency, took the No. 2 spot. Time described Coates' book as an "enhanced" collection of his columns in the Atlantic, examining the Obama years "from the standpoint of living under the Trump presidency."
