James B. Comey, the former F.B.I. director who was fired in May by President Trump, is writing a book about his experience in public service, including his tumultuous and brief tenure in the Trump administration.
Comey has been meeting with editors and publishers in New York in recent days, and is being represented by Keith Urbahn and Matt Latimer, partners at the literary agency Javelin. The book is expected to go to auction this coming week, and with all the recent controversy Comey has been hit with these past few months, all the major publishing houses have expressed keen interest, Mr. Latimer said.
But the book will not be a conventional tell-all memoir. Instead the book will explore the principles that have guided Comey through some of the most challenging moments of his legal career including his investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server during a contentious election, and his recent entanglement with the president over the F.B.I.’s inquiry into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.
