“Going Rouge: An American Nightmare”

A book mocking Sarah Palin's own effort will include articles from Salon

Topics: Sarah Palin, War Room, Going Rogue, Political Books,

It seems former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s book will have a little competition, and from the moment it’s released, no less. Palin’s memoir, “Going Rogue: An American Story,” is set to be released on Nov. 17. On the same day, a small publishing house, OR Books, will be releasing “Going Rouge: Sarah Palin — An American Nightmare.” As you might imagine, it’s not going to portray the former governor in a very flattering light.

The book is being edited by two editors from the Nation, Richard Kim and Betsy Reed, and is being released in a somewhat unconventional manner — at first, it’s only going to be available through the publisher, either as an e-book or a print-on-demand order.

Several articles originally published in Salon are slated for inclusion in the book: “The Sarah Palin Pity Party,” by Rebecca Traister; “The Losers Who Gave Us Sarah Palin,” by Joe Conason; and two pieces by Juan Cole, “What’s the Difference Between Sarah Palin and Muslim Fundamentalists? Lipstick” and “Sarah Palin: Meet Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Alex Koppelman is a staff writer for Salon.
