The Village Voice waxes snappy about why still First Lady Laura Bush “won’t be making a bundle from her memoirs.”
Our first lady (tick, tick, tick) Laura Bush is penning her memoirs, and reports say she’s getting a way smaller advance than the eight million whoppers Hillary Clinton nabbed for a somewhat similar work. And I have some pretty good ideas as to why that is. First of all, with the economy (and publishing) in the toilet, book advances are way lower than they used to be, and Laura has one whacked-out person she can thank for that--her husband!Here’s another reason: we’re still way (way!) more excited about the new Pooh!
