The New York Sun has a story this morning on Donald Rumsfeld‘s informational tour of the New York publishing world, as the former secretary of defense has apparently shown a few houses something, which a former aide insists couldn’t possibly be an outline or a proposal, “in an effort to gauge how much information he would have to disclose in the memoir in order to justify a large cash advance.” Reporter Gary Shapiro mentions our item from May about Rumsfeld’s trip to the Penguin building, and gets quotes from other potential buyers and industry observers, all of whom seem to agree that if he’s willing to open up about the war, a publisher might be willing to spring for a first printing in the neighborhood of 250,000-300,000 copies.
