Alex Kerry's book on Campaign 2004 purchased by Rodale
Alex Kerry: Capturing the Campaign

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/10219123/site/newsweek /

Dec. 5, 2005 issue - John Kerry may be looking ahead to the next election, but his daughter is still working on '04. Alex Kerry, who campaigned for her father in 33 states, has sold a memoir of the experience to Rodale Books, NEWSWEEK has learned. The book, to be published next year, will be a companion piece to the documentary she's making from 300 hours of footage shot on the road. Kerry (her short film about a Vietnam vet screened at Cannes last year) is working on the movie with Jehane Noujaim, an old friend and the director of "Control Room," the 2004 documentary about Al-Jazeera.

While both projects will offer a behind-the-scenes perspective, neither will be a juicy tell-all, Kerry says. After all, she and her camera were banished from strategy sessions. (Though when her dad once asked her to leave the room, the would-be first daughter did hide in the bathroom and shoot through the crack of the door.) Writing the book feels especially liberating. "Somebody let me loose with a book contract and now I have way too much say," she says. So what if her father, who's so far supportive, asks that something be edited out? "I guess we'll have a serious family discussion," she says.

2. Finally, a book with truth in it instead of personal attacks, innuendo,
faulty reasoning, and self-promoting bravado.
