Sarah Palin done writing ’dem words

The maverick’s 400-page memoir hits store shelves Nov. 17

Sarah Palin’s much-anticipated memoir—Going Rogue: An American Life—was supposed to be done next spring. But since resigning from her post as Alaska governor, the failed vice-presidential candidate has been typing so fast the release date was bumped up to next month. Her publisher, Jonathan Burham, is understandably thrilled. “Governor Palin has been unbelievably conscientious and hands-on at every stage, investing herself deeply and passionately in this project,” he says. “It’s her words, her life, and it’s all there in full and fascinating detail.” The first press run will be a whopping 1.5 million copies. No word yet on whether John McCain has already placed his order.
