An Improbable Memoir

Published June 30, 2010

Gov. Deval Patrick’s new memoir is available for preorder on Amazon — and it doesn’t come out till April 2011.

Um, why is a sitting governor writing his memoir? Do Charlie Baker’s political gains have Patrick pondering the end of his career?

Update: OK, I don’t think anyone actually believes Patrick is writing a memoir because he fears for his job. The book has been some time in the making. The real question is, Where does he find the time? Patrick is at every ribbon-cutting and televised event in Massachusetts, as he should be, not to mention running the state.
