Former Hollinger CEO to write Nixon biography

From the too good to be true category:

Former Hollinger International CEO Conrad Black, who faces federal charges in connection with his alleged fleecing of funds from his company, is going to write a biography of President Richard Nixon, according to an article in today's New York Post:

PublicAffairs will publish the tome in the United States as part of its fall list, the company said yesterday. The book is now in final edit. Black's massive criminal fraud trail is slated to begin in mid-March in Chicago on a wide variety of charges including money-laundering, mail and wire fraud, and racketeering when he ran Hollinger Inc. "He both knew Nixon and knows what it is like to be under tremendous public pressure," said Peter Osnos, PublicAffairs founder and now its editor at large.

Previously, Black wrote a biography of Franklin D. Roosevelt.

American Publishing Company, the United States subsidiary of Hollinger International, at one time owned The Carthage Press and the Neosho Daily News.
