Cuomo Jokes People Should Read His Book While Under Quarantine

October 27, 2014 3:34 p.m.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is hoping that mandatory quarantines for health workers returning to the U.S. from treating Ebola patients will boost his book sales.

While defending the controversial quarantines at a Monday news conference, Cuomo joked that those confined to their homes can read his new memoir, “All Things Possible: Setbacks and Success in Politics and Life.”

Cuomo sold just 945 copies of his book in the first week.

Correction: This post originally included a quote from Cuomo in which he was referring to a “legally enforceable” quarantine, not to his joke about the book.
