He’s a Literary American Too

You probably heard by now that Jim McGreevey will publish his memoir later this year. The onetime wunderkind of New Jersey politics certainly has a lot of great material to work with, having presided over the most scandal-plagued administration in recent memory.

McGreevey has never adequately explained the actions that led him to leave office, instead choosing to retreat into the bosom of his state police security detail from the moment he announced his resignation to the day he stepped down three months later.
