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.”
