Bill Clinton to Publish First Novel: 'The President is Missing'

Former President Bill Clinton is set to publish his first novel, “The President is Missing,” a book that he is co-writing with author James Patterson!

There are not many details known about the plot of the book, but it has been noted that the president featured in the story is completely fictional.

“Working on a book about a sitting President — drawing on what I know about the job, life in the White House, and the way Washington works — has been a lot of fun,” Clinton said in a statement (via THR). “And working with Jim has been terrific. I’ve been a fan of his for a very long time.”

“I’m a storyteller, and President Clinton’s insight has allowed us to tell a really interesting one. It’s a rare combination — readers will be drawn to the suspense, of course, but they’ll also be given an inside look into what it’s like to be President,” Patterson said, adding that working with Clinton has been the “highlight” of his career.

The book will be published jointly by Knopf and Hachette, both of the guys’ publishers.
