According to the Fox Network and ReganBooks, which is publishing it, O.J. Simpson has written a volume called If I Did It, Here's How It Happened, apparently an account of how he might have killed his ex-wife Nicole Brown, and Ron Goldman, if he had done so. The publisher says she considers it "his confession." Simpson's attorney, Yale Galanter, says he knew nothing about the book until this week. Mr. Galanter had earlier denied The National Enquirer's reports that such a book was in the works. Mr. Simpson will discuss the book during an extended interview on the Fox network on November 27 and November 29. Barnes and Noble online is advertising this book at a list price of $24.95, discounted to 17.46. The cover shows a photo of Mr. Simpson, with the word "If" in white and the words "I Did It" in red. The announcement is already causing outrage among members of Brown's family and other supporters. Read more here and here.
