Amanda Knox

Signs with Book Agent

Who Repped Barack Obama

12/5/2011 9:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Amanda KnoxThe Amanda Knox story is one step closer to bookstores everywhere -- TMZ has learned, she's signed with a very powerful literary agent in DC. 

According to sources, Amanda recently inked a deal with lawyer/lit agent Robert Barnett -- who has brokered book deals for some of the biggest names imaginable ... Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin and Dick Cheney ... to name a few.

Our sources say Amanda's Italian ex-BF Raffaele Sollecito -- who was also convicted and then exonerated in the murder of Meredith Kercher -- has signed with a book agent of his own ... Sharlene Martin, famous for brokering deals for several NY Times bestselling authors.

I'm surprised it took her this long to get a book deal.

I wonder if someone is going to check both books to see if the stories match before either one is published.

"I didn't do it." The end.
Blah blah blah. Still don't know whether she did or not, all I know is that picture of her like the very next day after Merideth's body was found, of her and her boyfriend smiling, outside the house where she was murdered, will be etched in my brain forever.

Amanda Knox spent 3 years in prison for accusing an innocent man of a crime she said she witnessed. The Italian court has not exonerated her. There is one more appeal to be heard. Why is this little criminal, Amanda Knox, being lionized? Where's the sympathy for hte victim, Meredith Kercher?

She is a hotti and I wish the best for her. Being falsely charged with murder, should be grounds for a multimillion dollar lawsuit!

Drop dead Haters!

Can sign all you want. It's another no-buy book. The story has already been do***ented on TV. She and her boyfriend got lucky. Meredith Kercher was not.


Her lawyer just like Casey Anthonys lawyer looking for a big payday. Publishers save your money.

Why would anybody read a whodunit if we already know who the killer is?

Woo i will be purchasing it.
The people who still think she did it when her and Raffeale were cleared of all the joint charges are delusional.

Don't be ridiculous. She got time served at her appeal so who knows how much time she would actually have been given originally. When she was originally unjustly convicted she was only sentenced to 1 year for falsely accusing an innocent man during an illegal interrogation.

Why did you list only President Obama in the title, yet George W. Bush, Sarah Palin, and **** Cheney are also connected in this same manner?
