Senator Kennedy To Write Memoirs

U.S. senator EDWARD 'TED' KENNEDY has signed a multi-million-dollar deal to write his memoirs. The youngest and last surviving brother of former U.S. president John F. Kennedy is reported to have received a larger sum than Senator Hillary Clinton's $8 million (GBP4 million) advance for her best-selling tome, Living History, although the exact figure has not been disclosed. In a statement, Kennedy, 75, says, "I've been fortunate to grow up in an extraordinary family and to have a front row seat at many key events in our nation's history. "I hope my reflections can contribute to a deeper understanding of many events in the history of this great country and to a more in-depth picture of an American family." The autobiography will be published by the Hachette Book Group in 2010. John F. Kennedy served as President for two years before he was assassinated in 1963.
