It’s utterly insane, but Governor Sarah Palin sold one million copies of her memoirs “Going Rogue: An American Life” in just two weeks time.
HarperCollins spokeswoman Tina Andreadis said Tuesday that just two weeks after publication, Sarah Palin’s memoir has sold 1 million copies. The print run for “Going Rogue” has been increased again, to 2.8 million copies. The original printing was 1.5 million, then moved up to 2.5 million.
“Going Rogue” joins a select club of million-selling political memoirs that includes Barack Obama’s “The Audacity of Hope,” Hillary Rodham Clinton’s “Living History” and Bill Clinton’s “My Life.”
I’m using “insane” as in “unbelievable, rather than in “freaking crazy,” but that should be obvious to regular readers of PoliGazette. What this lady is accomplishing defies all expectations and all previous records set by politicians. I said it once and I’ll say it again, Palin is a phenomenon. That’s all there is to it.
You’ll be able to read a review of her memoir right here at PoliGazette in a few weeks time. Stay tuned.
