Jury’s Out on Blair

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair‘s memoir, A Journey: My Political Life, goes on sale next week. Excitement is high in the UK, as expressed by The Independent yesterday,

The mere prospect of Blair’s memoirs is already generating a response that borders on the hysterical. Labour’s leadership candidates speculate nervously in private about what might be in it. The BBC will broadcast an hour-long interview. Newspapers plan extensive coverage. The financial arrangements for the narrative are a source of raging controversy [After much criticism, Blair announced that he will donate his £4.6m advance and royalties to a sports center for badly injured soldiers].

But will Americans care? Holds are negligible in the libraries we checked.
