‘Story of My Life’

Jay McInerney told Page Six last week that he had dated Rielle Hunter, John Edwards’s former mistress, in the ’80’s and that she was the model for the main character in his 1988 novel, Story of My Life

Yesterday, the AP reported that Vintage, the paperback imprint of Knopf (a division of Random House) is printing an additional 2,500 copies of the book.

They’d better hurry. On August 8th, the LA Times pointed out that 15 of the top 25 most popular Google search terms had to do with the Edwards affair. Today, none of the top 100 terms mention it. The book was up to #470 yesterday on Amazon; it’s now at #569.

Few libraries still own it.
