Rachel Maddow Book Delayed

pict-rmaddow-2.jpgFriends and foes of MSNBC personality Rachel Maddow will have to wait a little longer to read her book, as the anchor’s agent hopes to file the nonfiction book by the end of the year.

The New York Post caught up with Maddow’s agent, Laurie Liss from Sterling Lord Literistic. The agent said the book had evolved since the 2008 deal. Here’s a quote from Liss, from the article: “‘She’s been very busy lately,’ the agent said. ‘Hopefully, she will hand something in by the end of this year.’ The topic, she said, has ‘changed so many times. It’s non-fiction and it’s definitely not a memoir.’”

In October 2008, the host of MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” and former Air America host inked a book deal with Crown. According to a Publishers Marketplace (subscription only) the book will examine “how the United States has departed from its constitutional ideals and historical traditions to become a militarist nation, seemingly at peace with perpetual war.” (Via Blake Gernstetter)
