Clinton’s ‘Life’ out June 22

Knopf plans a whopping first printing of 1.5 mil copies

President Clinton’s much-awaited White House memoir is due to hit the shelves June 22 — at a staggering 957 pages.

Alfred A. Knopf announced the pub date of “My Life” on Wednesday, capping long-running intrigue about whether Clinton actually would be done writing in time for a June release. Book, which includes 32 photographs, will have a jacket price of $35.

Knopf is planning a whopping first printing of 1.5 million copies.

Execs at the pub house said “My Life” is certainly on the longer side. Robert Caro’s “Master of the Senate: The Years of Lyndon Johnson,” also published by Knopf, ran 1,167 pages.

Clinton’s memoir is guaranteed to be a bestseller, as was New York Sen. Hillary Clinton’s 2003 book, “Living History,” which totaled 562 pages.
