Hunter Biden’s memoir shot to the top of Amazon’s subcategory “Chinese biographies” after its release was announced for early April.
Biden’s memoir, titled “Beautiful Things,” will dive into his struggles with substance abuse, according to the Associated Press. His past addictions came under the national spotlight in October 2020 when a laptop that he allegedly owned, and its contents, were uncovered.

The book will not be made public until April 6, but many have pre-ordered the book. The Daily Caller asked Amazon why the book was listed under the “Chinese biographies” section, but had not heard back at time of publication.
The memoir was acquired in 2019 but kept under wraps through the Nov. 3 presidential election, according to the Associated Press. The book has been commended by numerous writers, such as Stephen King, Dave Eggers and Anne Lamott.

“In his harrowing and compulsively readable memoir, Hunter Biden proves again that anybody — even the son of a United States President — can take a ride on the pink horse down nightmare alley,” King wrote, according to the Associated Press.
The title of the memoir refers to a phrase that he and his late brother Beau would say to each other after Beau’s brain cancer diagnosis, according to Breitbart News.
“I come from a family forged by tragedies and bound by a remarkable, unbreakable love,” Hunter Biden wrote in a passage released by Gallery Books. Biden announced he was under federal investigation for potential tax crimes in December. The investigation began in 2018 and might involve his Chinese business dealings, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation.
