Someone Please (Please?!) Buy Tim Geithner's House

Curbed reports the former treasury secretary has listed his 2,537 square foot Bethesda home, purchased when he took the Washington gig, for $995,000.

Geithner, you'll recall, did not have much luck when it came to selling his Larchmont home, which he originally listed in 2009 and, after failing to sell it even at the reduced priced of $1.575 million, ultimately rented out for $7,500/month. Now he's got a book to write and doesn't have time to be running around telling people the place gets great light. Help him out here.

Let's Help Tim Geithner Name His Book

As you may have heard, Obama is apparently close to nominating Jack Lew for Treasury Secretary, giving Tim Geithner his late Christmas wish: a one-way ticket outta there. And while he's previously said to have no interest in writing about his time in Washington (and at the NY Fed before that), friends o' TG claim that his plan for the next year or so involve "a round of 'detox' and writing a book." Obviously we're still very far off from anything concrete but publishers will undoubtedly be banging down his door in no time and when they do, it might be nice to at least have a title to wet their palates. While Geithner packs his bags, let's do him a solid and come up with some options. The year spent sunning himself off the coast of Ko Samui (or puttering around Larchmont, or taking a job with the least amount of responsibility possible, whatever the detox entails) will presumably do wonders to take the edge of the last 48 months but if he's still in an angsty phase by the time he sits down to bang out his story, perhaps one of the following would work?
