Jenny Sanford, wife of Mark Sanford, the emotionally complex governor of South Carolina, is apparently looking for a book deal.
Following a glowing profile by Rebecca Johnson in the September Vogue, in which Mrs. Sanford was portrayed as an “unlikely heroine” who responded to recent revelations of her husband’s infidelity with stoicism and grace, the first lady put together a book proposal with the help of literary agent Joy Tutela of the David Black Agency.
According to several sources in the publishing industry, Ms. Tutela sent out the proposal on Sunday, Sept. 6—just in time for editors streaming back from their Labor Day vacays—and is talking to potential bidders this week.
Ms. Tutela declined to comment on Ms. Sanford’s project. The governor’s press office had no comment either.
