Later this month, Simon and Schuster is publishing O: A Presidential Novel, which is a book written by an anonymous author who has reportedly "been in the room" with Barack Obama. Here's the writeup:

The truth only fiction can tell.

This is a novel about aspiration and delusion, set during the presidential election of 2012 and written by an anonymous author who has spent years observing politics and the fraught relationship between public image and self-regard.

The novel includes revealing and insightful portraits of many prominent figures in the political world—some invented and some real.

It will be published "on or around" January 25th. Man, that Primary Colors was a fun book; I hope O is in that vein.
