Hunter Biden, a son of President Joe Biden and an ongoing target for conservatives, is a memoir on 6 April.

According to Gallery, an imprint by Simon & Schuster, the book is called “Beautiful Things” and will focus on young Biden’s publicized struggles with substance abuse. During the fall of 2019, “Beautiful Things” was also kept under wraps, as Biden’s business deal was fixed during the election for then-President Donald Trump and others and his finances were the subject of an investigation by the Justice Department.

“Beautiful Things” was broadcast among many authors and includes the advance acclaim of Stephen King, Dave Eggers, and Anne Lamotte.

“In his harsh and inevitably readable memoir, Hunter Biden again proves that anyone – even the son of a United States president – can ride a pink horse down a nightmare alley,” The king writes in his blurb. “Biden remembers it all and says it all with a bravery that is heartbreaking and quite beautiful. He Begins with a question: where is Hunter? The answer is in this book, good, bad and beautiful. “

In a snippet released by the gallery, Biden writes in his book, “I come from a family forced by tragedies and bound by a remarkable, unbreakable love.”

The president and first lady issued a statement on Thursday, saying, “We praise our son Hunter for his strength and the courage to speak openly about his addiction so that others can see themselves in their journey and find hope.” “

During a presidential debate last fall, Joe Biden protected his son from Trump’s attacks.

The Democratic candidate said, “My son, like a lot of people, like a lot of people, whom you know at home, had a drug problem.” “He got ahead of it. He is sure. He has worked on it, and I’m proud of him. I’m proud of my son.”

Hunter Biden, who turned 51 on Thursday, is the president’s oldest surviving child, who lost his first wife and 1-year-old daughter Naomi in a 1972 car accident, and son Beau Biden for brain cancer in 2015. Hunter’s book mentions an expression he and his brother used interchangeably.

Hunter Biden is a lawyer and former lobbyist whose work led to Trump’s first impeachment. Biden joined the board of Ukrainian gas company Barism in 2014, with his father, the then US Vice President, helping to conduct the Obama administration’s foreign policy in the region. Trump and others insisted that Biden was exploiting his father’s name, and made unfounded allegations of corruption. The House of Representatives voted to impeach Trump in 2019 after learning that he had pressured the President of Ukraine to declare that he was investigating Beedens. Trump was acquitted by the Senate.

Last December, Hunter Biden confirmed that the Department of Justice was looking into his tax matters, and the Associated Press later reported that he had received a subpoena when asked about conversations with several business entities. Although Trump publicly clarified that he wanted a special counsel to handle the investigation, Attorney General William Burr did not appoint one. Biden denies any wrongdoing.

The financial term for “Beautiful Things”, written in collaboration with writer and journalist Drew Zuber, was not disclosed. Biden and his publisher will likely face criticism from Republicans for his memoir, although books by members of the president’s family are nothing new. During Trump’s presidency, son Donald Trump Jr. released two books “Triggered” and “Liberal Privilege”.

President Biden vows that during the Trump administration, no family members will work in the White House. The book was in the works before becoming a Democratic frontrunner in the presidential campaign.

New York publishers often take writers with a political outlook, and Simon & Schuster has released books by Trump and Sean Hannity, along with Trump’s anti-bestseller as former national security adviser John Bolton’s “Room When It Happens” “And President Niece Mary Trump’s” Too Much and Never Enough. “

The publisher signed the final book by Josh Hawley of Mississippi, Missouri, a prominent Trump supporter in Washington. But dropped it in the wake of Holley’s support The January 6 protests led to a violent siege of the US Capitol by Trump supporters, who incorrectly believed the president was reelected.
