Look for bulk sales, I guess:
While some veterans of Donald Trump’s administration are having a tough time selling memoirs about their time in power, others with ties to Trump who didn’t embrace his election conspiracy theories have sold book deals.
William Barr, Trump’s former attorney general who resigned two days before Christmas after disagreeing publicly with Trump’s voter fraud conspiracy theories, recently sold a book about his time at the Justice Department, according to three people familiar with the deal.
Besides the obvious jokes about members of the 4th Reich not being literate, who wants to read a book by a rotating cast of second-string grifters?
“It would be hard to imagine anyone on the inside offering us any wisdom, insight or even good storytelling that would educate, enrich or even entertain us at this point,” said D.C. literary agent Gail Ross. “Books are selling quite well today because they offer us those elements. I presume a couple may convince a publisher otherwise. For me, tall tales by Trump acolytes don’t cut it.”
and then this bit about wack-o Peter Navarro (the man Fratsputin found while scanning Amazon looking for a China Hawk) who often cites himself by his nom-de plume Ron Varro as an expert:
Peter Navarro, Trump’s former firebrand trade adviser, ran into roadblocks in his initial attempts to sell a book with some publishers not expressing interest in the project, according to a publishing industry insider.
“Navarro was seen as a kook before this, so it’s not as if Peter Navarro would have an easy time selling a book prior to the administration,” said a different publishing source. Navarro wrote 13 books before his time at the White House, even using a fictional expert named Ron Vara in five of them.
Needless to say, I cannot imagine reading either Low Barr or Coathangers’ works, and I would think neither author is going to find boffo sales because 1) Hair Füror You’re Fired’ed Barr (essentially) and B) Coathangers has repeatedly let Possum Hollar down.
The remainder tables will be heavy with flops.
