    Cheney Memoir Due in August

    Just in time for the 10th anniversary of 9/11, former Vice President Dick Cheney has finished his memoir, said his daughter Liz Cheney, who helped write the book and is aiming for an August 30 release date. The book is titled In My Time: A Personal and Political Memoir. The cover art was released Wednesday by its publisher, Threshold Editions, a conservative imprint of Simon & Schuster run by Republican strategist and former Cheney aide Mary Matalin. Liz Cheney said the book is “very straightforward,” but said there will be some surprises as well. “There’s a whole range of interesting stories that haven’t been talked about,” she said, adding that it will feature “very strong views.”
