Look Out, She’s Got a Contract!

Newsweek reports that Alex Kerry got a book deal for a memoir about life following her father on the presidential campaign trail last year, “a companion piece to the documentary she’s making from 300 hours of footage shot on the road.” Including, possibly, the scenes she shot while hiding in the next room and peeping through the door. (Some jokes just write themselves, so say it with me now: ewwwww!) Although I’m wondering if there’s not a ‘to’ missing from her triumphal declaration: “Somebody let me loose with a book contract and now I have way too much say.” Sure, sure…but when do we get to read Jenna’s campaign diary?
