Hillary Clinton says she loves to dip into a good book when she gets a break from the campaign trail — and her latest favorites are the Neapolitan Novels from Italian author Elena Ferrante.
On an episode of the “With Her” campaign podcast, released Thursday, Clinton called the series “hypnotic.”
Clinton also spoke about shaking off negativity and stressed how much she values her longtime friends, adding that she will have them stay at the White House if she’s elected.
Clinton said she relishes time with her friends. She said: “It’s so easy to get isolated when you are president. You can be surrounded by really incredibly professional supportive staff people, but you never know what you might pick up if you break out of that circle from time to time.”
