The Obamas have sold their memoirs

Thu-Huong Ha writes,

Penguin Random House announced today that it has acquired two books by Barack and Michelle Obama. The memoirs of the former US president and first lady, to be published separately, had been the subject of a intense bidding war between some of the biggest US book publishers: Penguin Random House, HarperCollins, and Simon & Schuster and Macmillan together placed bids, according to the Financial Times (paywall).

Obama so wants to be perceived as an everyman. Hey, look at me! I’m just an ordinary man (who happened to be president). But he’s not. He’s subtle. He’s crafty. He’s a snake in the grass. And if you don’t see it, it’s because you have your tinted glasses on.
