Barack Obama's new biography – by new york editor

A new biography of President Barack Obama by New Yorker editor David Remnick has been planned for an April 6th release in print, audio and e-book versions. Publisher Knopf Doubleday says the book is based on hundreds of interviews with relatives, friends, mentors, donors, and rivals. Remnick won a Pulitzer Prize in 1994 for "Lenin’s Tomb," about the Soviet Union's collapse, and also wrote "King of the World" about the boxer Muhammad Ali.
Obama's name has been magic in publishing - from books to Spiderman comics - but some of the luster has damaged off since his election. He has been taking his lumps in Congress over health care, and some Democratic candidates are distancing themselves from his policy. It will be very interesting to see how this bio fares.
Sonny Mehta, chairman of Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group, said in a news release about the book: “Obama’s election as President was based less on policies prescriptions than on a sense of his character and biography. "The Bridge" reveals not only his nature, but also his trials, motivations, and perspectives in a way that a memoir, even a remarkable one, cannot.”
