James Comey, the former FBI director fired earlier this year by President Trump, has found a home for the book he was rumored to be shopping. Bob Miller and Colin Dickerman at Flatiron Books bought world English rights to the currently untitled work, which is due out in spring 2018.
Comey, who was represented by Matt Latimer and Keith Urbahn at the Washginton, D.C.-based agency Javelin, served as director of the FBI from 2013 to 2017. The book, Flatiron said, "will explore what good, ethical leadership looks like and how it drives sound decisions." Flatiron made no mention in its press release about whether the book will explore Comey's dealings with Trump, dealings which were, by all accounts, acrimonious.
The press release, which did not feature the President's name, simply said the book will "share yet-unheard anecdotes from his [Comey's] long and distinguished career."
When asked whether the book will delve into Comey's interactions and thoughts on Trump, a spokesperson for Flatiron said the publisher has no further comment beyond what was in the press release.
Miller called Comey someone who "has had to face one difficult decision after another as he has served the leaders of our country." With this in mind, Miller went on, Comey's book will "give us unprecedented entry into the corridors of power, and a remarkable lesson in leadership itself."
Dickerman will edit the book.
