James Comey sold his memoir for $2 million

Former FBI Director James Comey has found a home for his memoir about his career in government to the tune of $2 million, The Guardian reports. The book, which reportedly earned the interest of all the major publishing houses, was ultimately acquired by Macmillan's Flatiron imprint and will be released next spring.

Comey's memoir will include "examples from some of the highest-stakes situations in the past two decades of U.S. government" and "share yet unheard anecdotes from his long and distinguished career." An earlier New York Times report about the book said it would also touch on Comey's short time in the Trump administration, which he was dumped from this spring, allegedly over his Russia investigation.

"Throughout his career, James Comey has had to face one difficult decision after another as he has served the leaders of our country," Flatiron wrote. "His book promises to take us inside those extraordinary moments in our history, showing us how these leaders have behaved under pressure. By doing so, Director Comey will give us unprecedented entry into the corridors of power, and a remarkable lesson in leadership itself."
