Another Obama Book

Times Reporter Gets Seven Figures

Have room for another Obama book on your shelf? Little, Brown is betting that you do. The publisher has signed New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor to a seven-figure book deal to write about the Obamas. Recently, Kantor wrote a New York Times Magazine cover story on the Obama’s marriage, which said “the Obamas mix politics and romance in a way that no first couple quite have before.” It’s unclear whether Kantor will have the Obamas’ cooperation. During the campaign, she reported for the Times on Obama’s past.
