The former US president has written a “personal biography” of his former US president father.
Crown publishers announced that the biography of ex-president George H. W. Bush, written by his son George W. Bush, will be released on Nov 11 – Veteran’s Day holiday in the United States.
The elder Bush, the 41st US president, was a decorated World War II aviator. “George H. W. Bush is a great servant, statesman, and father,” W. Bush said in a statement. “I loved writing the story of his life, and I hope others enjoy reading it.”
Crown said that an audiobook would be released as the same time as the print version. The hardcover edition has an announced first printing of one million copies.
W. Bush was the 43rd president of the United States, serving from January 2001 to January 2009. His father was the 41st US president.
Crown said the release of the book is historic. “Never before has a president told the story of his father, another president, through his own eyes and in his own words,” a company statement said, calling the work “a unique and intimate biography”.
The book covers the entire scope of the elder Bush’s life and career, including his service in the Pacific during World War II, his pioneering work in the Texas oil business, and his political rise in the US Congress, time as director of the CIA and of course, his term in the White House. — AFP Relaxnews
