IT TAKES A VILLAGE: HILLARY HAD THREE WRITERS FOR AUTOBIOGRAPHY
In her new book, LIVING HISTORY, Hillary Rodham Clinton acknowledges -- in opening pages -- three women for their assistance and contribution to the project, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
Clinton, who is scheduled to receive an $8 million advance for the book, thanks author Maryanne Vollers, former Clinton speechwriter Lissa Muscatine and writer Ruby Shamir, sources reveal.
Clinton raised eyebrows in 1996 when she failed to acknowledge a single person in her bestseller, IT TAKES A VILLAGE. Not even ghostwriter Barbara Feinman [ who was paid $120,000] was mentioned. Clinton claimed she wrote the book entirely on her own. The omission created bad publicity, and according to press reports, it also prompted Feinman to strike back by telling Bob Woodward about Clinton's "seances" with Eleanor Roosevelt.
LIVING HISTORY is being held in strict embargo by publisher SIMON AND SCHUSTER for a June 9 release.
