That’s the length of President Bill Clinton’s memoir My Life. I guess since Random House paid him at least $10 million they couldn’t find any more money in the budget for an editor. This may resemble his State of the Union speeches where he just went on and on and on. Other than a Clinton devotee who’s going to sit down and read every single page? You just know many will get their book and jump right to all the Ken Starr/Monica Lewinski stuff.
The big book I’ll be digging into later this summer is Ron Chernow’s Alexander Hamilton. He stopped by my store a few weeks ago, and he was kind, generous, and excited about his subject as well as the attention the store’s staff was lavishing him with.
