Karl Rove Memoir Coming in March 2010

karlrove23.jpgToday Threshold Editions announced that they will publish Karl Rove‘s 592-page memoir, “Courage and Consequence” on March 9, 2010.

The political strategist helped elect President George W. Bush and served as White House deputy chief of staff in Bush’s administration. His book promises to “set the record straight on those controversial years”–a popular theme with former Bush staffers. In 2011, both Bush and former Vice President Dick Cheney will publish their own memoirs. Cheney has already promised to reveal the “heated arguments” behind the scenes at the White House.

Threshold editor-in-chief Mary Matalin (a conservative leader in her own right, profiled here) had this statement: “Karl has always been in a league of his own in the world of electoral politics and now he creates a unique genre for historians, policy makers, political junkies and serious readers.”
