About the Author

Amy Chozick is a writer-at-large for the New York Times. Originally from San Antonio, Texas, she lives in New York with her husband and son.


"Chozick's own funny, wicked and wacky side is on full display, with well-drawn sketches of everyone from fresh-faced campaign interns to the candidates themselves. With her lively voice and eye for detail, Chasing Hillary is an enjoyable read, like The Devil Wears Prada meets The Boys on the Bus." -- New York Times

"[Chasing Hillary is] a sort-of 'Bridget Jones's Diary' meets 'What it Takes' coming-of-age rom-com set on the campaign trail, with a tragic twist at the end (spoiler alert: Clinton lost)." -- New York Magazine

"Perhaps we should see [the election] now as a funeral for how politics used to be done. Almost nobody, including Chozick, saw it coming. But her book captures the horrors of the journey. It is worth its price in stilettoed prose. Her future as a writer is strawberry-coloured." -- Financial Times

"The book promises to read like a rapidly paced political novel, a memoir converging with one of the most controversial and notable political figures of our time." -- Entertainment Weekly

"[Chasing Hillary] stands to do to Clinton and her campaign what Joshua Green's Devil's Bargain did to the president and Steve Bannon--deliver a highly readable and essential chronicle of the election that just was and likely will always be with us." -- American Conservative

"Poignant, insightful...perceptive, pithy and surprising." -- Washington Post

"Chasing Hillary [is] so wickedly readable: like Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury, it's a nonfiction novel." -- The Guardian

"Amy Chozick's memoir of covering Hillary Clinton for the New York Times gives you a first-row seat on the past two elections--and an important reality check about how we interpret news from the campaign trail. Come for the politics; stay for the anecdotes about a young journalist juggling ambition, exhaustion and, well, life.... Chozick has my vote for best political memoir of the year." -- Glamour

"[A] funny, raw and female take on the campaign memoir." -- People

"Because in stirring together the two women's striving in a long, neurotic game of hide and seek, what you arrive at is the lopsided but right-seeming conclusion that if only Hillary Clinton were a little more like Amy Chozick, maybe she'd be president right now." -- Weekly Standard

"Almost Famous meets Game Change." -- Axios

"Amy Chozick has written a breathtaking, page-turning masterpiece that pretends to be about Hillary Clinton's defiant presidential run. But Chasing Hillary is also--for the brilliant Chozick--a deeply personal story. Wait till you get the gory, insider details of the bloodiest political battle in recent memory. A must read!" -- Mary Karr

"Amy Chozick sweeps us along on a ten-year chase after the most famous and elusive woman in modern politics. At the bittersweet end, she captures Hillary, and America, and the traveling press, and some part of herself." -- David Maraniss

"This insanely readable book manages to bring humor and a fresh inside perspective to the saddest event in history. The details alone are sure to drive Democrats to fisticuffs, or whatever we do when the kale runs out." -- Gary Shteyngart, New York Times bestselling author of Little Failure
