Former Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton is set to reveal her new book titled, “What Happened.”

The book will serve as a memoir discussing her 2016 presidential election loss.

A first-look at the book highlights Clinton’s discomfort debating against then-candidate Donald Trump.

Per NBC News:

In the first excerpts from Hillary Clinton’s highly anticipated upcoming memoir, the former Democratic presidential candidate said her “skin crawled” during a debate with Donald Trump.

In audio clips of Clinton reading from the book, “What Happened,” which were first obtained by MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Wednesday, Clinton recounted her thoughts as she toyed with the idea of telling her Republican rival to “back up, you creep” as he stood behind her during the second presidential debate.

“My skin crawled,” Clinton said. “It was one of those moments where you wish you could hit pause and ask everyone watching ‘well, what would you do?'”

Clinton explains she considered making a spectacle at the debate:

Clinton said during the debate she decided against telling Trump, “back up, you creep, get away from me,” and in order to keep her composure, she gripped the microphone “extra hard.”

But, in hindsight, Clinton wondered if she should have taken the time to tell Trump off for following her.

“It certainly would have been better TV,” she said. “Maybe I have over-learned the lesson of staying calm, biting my tongue, digging my fingernails into a clenched fist, smiling all the while, determined to present a composed face to the world.”

The book will be Clinton’s chance to admit to the nation mistakes she made during the campaign:

Clinton’s memoir, scheduled for release on Sept. 12, is slated to be a postmortem on mistakes she made along the campaign trail and what she called the “devastating” and unexpected loss to President Donald Trump, according to a press release.

“In this book, I write about moments from the campaign that I wish I could go back and do over. If the Russians could hack my subconscious, they’d find a long list,” Clinton said in one part of the book.

In an earlier section of the book, Clinton explains that the memoir will not be a comprehensive account of the 2016 race.
