LOS ANGELES, Feb. 13 (UPI) -- Former President Bill Clinton won a Grammy Award Sunday for the audio version of his memoir, "My Life."

Clinton won the award for Best Spoken Word Album. Previous winners of the spoken word Grammy have included Al Franken, Maya Angelou, Robin Williams, Quincy Jones, George Carlin and Clinton's wife, U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y. She won it in 1996 for the audio version of her best-selling book "It Takes a Village."

"My Life" was released in U.S. bookstores last June and became a runaway best-seller, both in print and in audio. Publisher Alfred A. Knopf ordered a first-printing of 1.5 million copies of the book and a reported 350,000 copies of the audio version.
