Former Clinton aide writes Lincoln trilogy

NEW YORK

A former White House aide to President Bill Clinton has spent the past few years writing a trilogy about the life of another president — Abraham Lincoln.

Sidney Blumenthal has a deal with Simon & Schuster, the publisher announced last week. The three-volume biography has the working title “Abraham Lincoln: A Political Life.” The first book, “A Self-Made Man,” is scheduled to come out in 2015. Blumenthal will be edited by Alice Mayhew, whose other projects have included Doris Kearns Goodwin’s million-selling Lincoln book “Team of Rivals.”

During a recent telephone interview with The Associated Press, Blumenthal said he had already completed all three volumes, each more than 500 pages, and had waited until he finished before seeking a publisher.
