June 11, 2021

Scribner announced on Thursday that Huma Abedin, close aide to corrupt presidential loser Hillary Clinton and estranged wife of disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner, has a memoir coming out this fall.

In Both/And: A Life in Many Worlds, to be released on Nov. 2, Abedin will tell “her inspiring story, coming of age as an American Muslim, the daughter of Indian and Pakistani scholars who split their time between Saudi Arabia, the United States, and the UK,” according to the publisher.

Both/And grapples with family, legacy, identity, faith, marriage, and motherhood,” Scribner announced. “It shares Huma Abedin’s personal accounts as a longtime aide to Hillary Clinton during Mrs. Clinton’s years as First Lady, U.S. Senator, a presidential candidate, Secretary of State, and Democratic Presidential Nominee, and a candid and moving reckoning of Ms. Abedin’s marriage to former Congressman Anthony Weiner.”

Abedin, who currently serves as chief of staff to Hillary, who has referred to her as a second daughter.

“Over the years, we’ve shared stories about our lives, we’ve shared more meals than I can count, we’ve celebrated together, we’ve mourned together,” Abedin said of Hil in an August 2016 feature in Vogue.

“Some people thought I should fire Huma or ‘distance myself.’ Not a chance,” Hillary wrote. “I stuck by her the same way she has always stuck by me.”

And that says quite a bit about both of them.
