Memoirs of a Hockey Mom: or, how Sarah Palin penned a memoir in a real hurry

Just in time for Christmas the upcoming holiday shopping season, one of the most baffling interesting figures in American politics has penned a tell-all memoir, the L.A. Times reports. 

Ex-governor Sarah Palin’s 400-page tome, titled Going Rogue: An American Life, will hit shelves Nov.17, well in advance of the spring release date.  According to Politico, Palin finished writing her manuscript before her Sept.15 deadline and the memoir is now undergoing a speedy copy-edit and fact-checking to meet the revised publishing schedule.

The memoir will be published by Harper, a division of HarperCollins, with an expected print run of a whopping 1.5-million, the same number as Ted Kennedy’s True Compass.  

Harper publisher Jonathan Burnham tells the L.A. Times that the memoir contains many “fascinating details.” Which makes one wonder what fascinating details about the former Alaska governor haven’t already been revealed by her daughter’s baby daddy.
