The memoir was acquired in the fall of 2019 but kept under wraps during the tense 2020 presidential race, The Associated Press reported.

The election saw the younger Biden become a target for conservatives following a New York Post article that alleged that Hunter Biden had organized a meeting between a Ukrainian businessman and his father, who was vice president at the time. That claim was based on emails obtained from a hard drive with no substantive links to anyone involved.

Financial terms for the book, which was written in collaboration with author and journalist Drew Jubera, were not disclosed.

The president’s son revealed in December that the U.S. attorney’s office in Delaware was investigating his tax affairs, though he has denied wrongdoing.

Hunter Biden is the president’s only living son. Beau Biden, his other son, died of brain cancer in 2015.

The AP notes that “Beautiful Things” refers to an expression Hunter and Beau would use after Beau’s diagnosis and is meant to emphasize what was important in life.
