Dallas News: Former First Lady Laura Bush's upcoming memoir promises to deliver behind-the-scenes glimpses of her "public triumphs and personal tribulations,'' according to promotional material on her new website.
The book, Spoken from the Heart (Scribner, a division of Simon & Schuster), will be released on May 4. A major rollout is planned. She'll be on the morning talk shows and traveling across country to promote the book. Yak yak yak.
As one of the more enigmatic figures in the Bush family, Laura Bush could deliver a new perspective. White House senior advisor Karl Rove has already published a defense of the Bush years and the former president's own memoir is scheduled for release later this year.
The advance hype on Laura Bush's book promises "rare intimacy and candor'' in her telling of major events not only in Washington, but from her early life.
