Clinton's book, sort of

Bill Clinton's best-selling memoir, "My Life," already has begun appearing in small bookstores in China, except that the narrator is not the former president, but his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton. Chalk up the confusion to copyright piracy, a favorite Chinese pastime. One of the pirated versions, sold at a temple book fair for $1.20, uses a different photo on the cover. Other telltale signs of fakes: books that list the wrong publisher and books that use the table of contents from Mrs. Clinton's memoir, "Living History." Alfred A. Knopf, the publisher of "My Life," hasn't yet sold the Chinese-language rights to the book.

1. Madison, Wisc.
2. Athens, Ga.
3. Austin, Texas
4. Gainesville, Fla.
5. Boulder, Colo.

7. Eugene, Ore.
