Scribe to publish Biden’s memoir to coincide with the inauguration

Scribe is publishing a new b format paperback edition of US president-elect Joe Biden’s original memoir, Promises to Keep, to coincide with the presidential inauguration this month.

The memoir tells the story of Biden’s life and career prior to his emergence as Barack Obama’s vice president. The book has never previously been published in the UK and there has been greatly increased interest in the title internationally since Biden’s election as US president.

Scribe’s publisher, Henry Rosenbloom, has acquired UK & Commonwealth rights to the book. He says, ‘We’re thrilled to be publishing this book. It’s Biden’s equivalent to Obama’s Dreams of My Father, very well written and compelling, in which he comes across as remarkably decent, smart, and emotionally intelligent. It is an essential book for anyone wanting to understand the new president’s values and character.’

Priced £9.99, the b format paperback edition will be released on January 14.
