Guiliani Writing a Book

August 11, 2000

NEW YORK (AP) _ Rudolph Guiliani is going to write a book. Never mind that he doesn’t yet know what it’ll be about, or when _ or if _ he’ll ever finish it.

But the New York mayor will need something to do after term limits force him out of City Hall in 15 months. He says he’s not interested in being governor or taking a cabinet post in a George W. Bush administration, and he dropped out of the Senate race earlier this year after announcing he had prostate cancer.

Giuliani has already discovered the chief hazard of living the writer’s life. ``Since I was U.S. attorney, I think actually it is four or five different versions that I’ve started,″ he said.

Constance Sayre, director of the publishing trade association group Marketing Partners International, predicted a somewhat modest advance. ``For a book that only has possibly regional interest, if he gets $100,000, I’d think he’d be doing well, although what do I know?″ Sayre said. ``Publishers are crazy.″
