This is a version of Clinton’s autobiography I’d be interested in reading.
Beijing, China, Jul. 21 (UPI) — Chinese book counterfeiters have had a heyday with former U.S. President Bill Clinton’s memoirs, saying he was an ardent fan of Chairman Mao Zedong.
The paperback issued in Clinton’s name and with his photo on the cover includes sizeable amounts of “new” material, while managing to be half the length of the original, The Times of London said Wednesday.
Clinton is the latest victim of Chinese publishing pirates, who counterfeit entire books and rewrite the contents. Acting on the orders of their employers, translators regularly add invented content to make foreign books more appealing, such as Clinton’s memories of his affair with intern Monica Lewinsky.
“She was very fat. I can never trust my own judgment,” the Mandarin version said.
In the knock-off version, Clinton quotes Chairman Mao frequently.
