Next political memoirist: Michele Bachmann

Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann will become part of a tradition among White House wannabes when she releases her memoir in November.

Sentinel, a conservative imprint of Penguin, said Bachmann’s book, which is still untitled, will “share previously untold stories” about her private life, “including her roles as a tax attorney, a wife, a mother of five and a foster mother of 23,” the Associated Press reports.

In a statement issued through Sentinel, Bachmann said: “People are the most important ingredient in life. I love people, and I care deeply that our nation’s economy turns around so they can realize their American dream. This book will help to share my enthusiasm for an energized, pro-growth economy, and the life experiences that inform my optimism for the American people and for American greatness.”

Steven Levingston is the nonfiction editor of The Washington Post. He is author of “Little Demon in the City of Light: A True Story of Murder and Mesmerism in Belle Époque Paris” (Doubleday, 2014) and “The Kennedy Baby: The Loss that Transformed JFK” (Washington Post eBook, 2013).
