"Washington author Kitty Kelley is crashing to finish her latest book, a biography of the Bush family scheduled for publication by Doubleday on Sept. 15, but she may have a hard time catching up with two similar tomes already in the bookstores, one of which is also published by Doubleday," The Hill reports.
"Kelley's book, The Family: The Real Story of the Bush Dynasty, will go up against Kevin Phillips's critical study, American Dynasty: Aristocracy, Fortune, and the Politics of Deceit in the House of Bush (2004 book) (ISBN 0670032646) (Viking Press) and Peter Schweizer and Rochelle Schweizer's The Bushes: Portrait of a Dynasty (ISBN 0385498632) (Doubleday).'"

Reported by Democracy Now!" on 9 September 2004:

The New York Times is reporting that the White House recently called the president of NBC News to discourage the network from broadcasting interviews with best selling biographer Kitty Kelley. Kelley has authored a new book on the Bush family that charges President Bush was a cocaine user and that he once used cocaine at Camp David while his father was president.
