The government has finally stopped punishing the Penguin Group for NO EASY DAY and has truly cleared General Stanley McChrystal‘s book MY SHARE OF THE TASK for publication. They’ll miss the holiday period, and the book will publish January 7. Otherwise, it’s safe to assume that anyone with a book on General David Petraeus has moved up their planned publication date by a couple of weeks. Also just announced for the beginning of the year is Lawrence Wright‘s long-awaited book on the Church of Scientology, GOING CLEAR: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief. Knopf will publish on January 17.
