NO EASY DAY To Arrive Next Week

If the government wants to block publication of No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama Bin Laden (Penguin/Dutton; Penguin Audio), they’d better hurry. The publisher just announced it’s being released the book this coming Tuesday, a week earlier than planned. In response to strong demand, reports the NYT, the print run has been increased from 300,000 to 575,000.

At least a few copies are already out. Both The Huffington Post and the Associated Press claim to have purchased copies in bookstores and report that some of the book’s details contradict official descriptions of  bin Laden’s killing.

The author was reportedly in talks with studios last week about a film adaptation. Dreamsworks has issued a statement yesterday, saying, “Neither Steven Spielberg, DreamWorks Studios or DreamWorks Television will be optioning Mark Owen’s book No Easy Day.”
