George W. Bush's biography of George H.W. Bush will be published on November 11, 2014. Hillel Itale writes:
According to Crown, the book will cover the elder Bush's whole life and his influence on his son, from George W.'s "childhood in West Texas to his early campaign trips with his father, and from his decision to go into politics to his own two-term presidency."
The book will be "heartfelt, intimate, and illuminating," Crown publisher Maya Mavjee said in a statement.
The book will be around 300 pages, and the publisher is quick to point out that W wrote it all by himself. Hopefully the title is Everything I Needed to Know About Invading Iraq I Learned from My Daddy. I wonder if it will include the time Bush the younger drunkenly challenged Bush the elder to a fistfight? And will it end with Saddam Hussein hanging from a rope as George W. Bush walks down a hallway in slow motion to "Carry On Wayward Son?" The speculative versions of this book will undoubtedly be better than reality.
