Jon Stewart, Back on the Book Beat

We’ve missed Jon Stewart’s attention to books while his show has been on hiatus. But he came back last night, interviewing Elizabeth Dowling Taylor about her book, A Slave in the White House, (Macmillan/Palgrave). As a result, the book rose on Amazon sales rankings, to #220 (from #29,478).

Tonight, Stewart features Craig Shirley, author of the forthcoming authorized bio of Newt Gingrich. UPDATE: the book that Stewart and Shirley discussed was the  author’s earlier title, December, 1941. The following title appears to have been delayed.

Hardcover: 320 pages
Publisher: Thomas Nelson – (2012-01-31)

    Do you have any idea what happened to Citizen Newt? Ingram has a “publisher postponed” listed for it.

    Thanks for the alert; we are checking with the publisher. As it turns out, the book featured on the show was not CITIZEN NEWT, but the author’s earlier book.
