(CNN) - According to a new book, Hillary Clinton blamed Bill Clinton's infidelity on his abusive childhood.

The comments were from a 1999 interview with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Lucinda Franks, who is putting them in her new book.

Other parts of the interview were published in Talk Magazine, where Franks was working at the time.

In the interview, the former secretary of state said her husband was abused by his mother, and that eventually led to a sex addiction.

Franks' book, Timeless: Love, Morgenthau and Me comes out this month. Franks is the former wife of Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau.

CNN requested a comment on the book from Hillary Clinton's spokesman, but never received one.
