(Newser) – Elizabeth Edwards will publish a short memoir in May that will deal in part with her husband's campaign-killing affair, Fox News reports. The book, Resilience, will talk about John Edwards' dalliance, "and how she experienced it," says Elizabeth's publicist, who declined to reveal other specifics. The book also is expected to deal with Elizabeth's battle with incurable cancer.

John Edwards dropped out of the presidential race when his affair with Reille Hunter became public. A month later, she gave birth to a baby boy. Hunter has privately told friends that John is the father, Fox reports, and is hoping that he will help support the baby. Neither has discussed the baby's paternity publicly, and the birth certificate lists no father.
