Blockbuster Two-Book Deal — Especially Book Two

From the New York Times — or maybe The Onion:

Madeleine K. Albright, secretary of state from 1997 to 2001 in the Clinton administration, is writing about international relations and religion as part of a two-book deal with HarperCollins, Reuters reported. The first book, “The Mighty and the Almighty: God and Religion in American Foreign Policy,” is to be published in the spring. Jonathan Burnham, senior vice president and publisher of HarperCollins, who worked on her best seller, “Madam Secretary” (Miramax, 2003), said, “She’ll offer a sharp critique of U.S. policy, condemnation for those who exploit religious fervor for violent ends, and praise for political, cultural and spiritual leaders who seek to harness the values of faith to bring people together.” Her second book, yet untitled, will be an illustrated work devoted to her collection of decorative pins.

Byron York is a former White House correspondent for National Review.
