E-Book about Assange on sale Wednesday

- Associated Press - Wednesday, August 10, 2011

NEW YORK (AP) - A British journalist's inside take on WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is being published in the U.S. as an e-book "single."

Digital publisher RosettaBooks announced Wednesday that Heather Brooke's "Assange Agonistes" can be downloaded for $1.99 through Amazon.com's Kindle Single program. The e-book is a 24,000-word, first person narrative based on Brooke's "The Revolution will be Digitised," coming out in Britain later this month. The full-length book does not yet have a publisher in the U.S.

"Assange Agonistes" tells of Brooke's disillusionment with Assange, whom she initially admired as a "warrior for freedom," but later decided was "unsettlingly, even bafflingly, unaware of any notion of personal boundaries."
