Andrew Cuomo, the governor of New York, will publish a new book called American Crisis on October 13. Penguin Random House's Crown division acquired the title, which it called a "revealing, behind-the-scenes account of his experience leading New York State through the COVID-19 epidemic."

Elaborating on the title, Crown said that, in it, Cuomo recounts how he "found himself at the forefront of one of the greatest threats his state—and the United States—has ever faced," when the Covid-19 epidemic was spreading rampantly in the tri-state region months ago. The publisher said that Cuomo recounts, "in his own voice," the "ingenuity and sacrifice required of so many to fight the pandemic, sharing his personal reflections on forty years in government and the decision-making that shaped his political policy."

Gillian Blake and Libby Burton bought world rights to the book from Robert Barnett at Williams & Connolly.
