Hillary Clinton has promised to “let her guard down” in a revealing memoir as she remembers her stunning election defeat to Donald Trump.

The former Democratic presidential candidate announced the title of her forthcoming memoir on the 2016 campaign would be ‘What Happened’.

Publisher Simon & Schuster said on Thursday that Clinton will delve into the “intense personal experience” of being the first woman nominated by a major party for president.

It said the book also will “connect the dots” about what it was like to run against an unorthodox candidate and the alleged Russian meddling in the election, something she has hinted at before when describing her loss. 

In the introduction of the novel, Clinton writes: “In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I’ve often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net. Now I’m letting my guard down.”

According to her publisher, Clinton is also expected to recount the “challenges of being a strong woman in the public eye, the criticism over her voice, age, and appearance and the double standard confronting women in politics.”

In March, the former senator and secretary of state accepted an award for her work advocating for women.

“I’ve had my ups and my downs. In the last months, I’ve done my share of sleeping. A little soul searching and reflecting,” Clinton said.

The publisher previously announced a book of Clinton’s essays for September, but said the book had now evolved into a “full memoir”. 

It added: “The election of 2016 was unprecedented and historic. What Happened is the story of that campaign and its aftermath – both a deeply intimate account and a cautionary tale for the nation.

“Hillary Clinton lost an election but she remains unbroken and undefeated. This memoir is for the millions of Americans who want to understand what really happened in 2016, how to make sense of it, and how we all can keep going.”

The memoir hits the shelves on September 12.
