Tina Brown Writing Book On the Clintons For Doubleday

Tina Brown, who edited The New Yorker during all but two of Bill Clinton’s years in the White House, will write a book about the former President and his wife for Doubleday, it was announced today.

The book will be called The Clinton Chronicles–just like Ms.Brown’s last one, which came out this summer, was called The Diana Chronicles. Maybe she is starting a franchise?

Phyllis Grann is the acquiring editor, just like she was on Diana, for which she paid a reported $2 million dollars. The book–which, according to the press release from Doubleday, will explore "not just the enthralling story of the Clintons themselves but the social, political and media context of the times"– is scheduled for publication in 2010.
