Tony Blair's memoirs will be published by Alfred A. Knopf, part of the Random House empire, which is part of Germany's Bertelsmann AG. The book will cover the former P.M.'s life up through his Downing Street years. No financial terms were announced -- they never are -- but the New York Times reported a $9 million deal.

The Knopf release said that Blair will write the book himself -- apparently that's so remarkable for a pol that it needs to be noted. In a quote cited by Knopf, Blair said, "I hope my memoirs will provide a serious and thoughtful, but also entertaining, reflection on my time as a member of Parliament and as Prime Minister." No publication date has been set.
