It's not uncommon for the NYT to publish multiple reviews of books, but I did find it rather odd that that one of their PR people found it necessary to send out the following message:

E-mail from Kathy Park of New York Times Public Relations


I wanted to let you know that Larry McMurtry reviewed Bill Clinton's book "My Life." The review is available on now, two weeks before it is to appear in The New York Times Book Review on July 4. (Will be linked from the homepage of tomorrow)

In the review, Larry McMurtry describes "My Life" as..."the richest American presidential autobiography - no other book tells us as vividly or fully what it is like to be president of the United States for eight years."
