I Bet You Think This Book Is About You.

Carly Simon to release memoir

Carly Simon is set to release her revealing memoir three years after inking her first book deal.

The You’re So Vain hitmaker initially secured an agreement with bosses at Random House to write an autobiography in 2012, but after a series of delays, she has finally finished her memoir, titled Boys in the Trees, which will be released on November 24 through Flatiron Books.

In a statement announcing the tome, Simon teases she’ll be revealing a lot of untold stories from her life that she’s previously kept secret.

It reads: “This book is my way of going back through my childhood, my music, my romances, my marriage… and trying to make sense of it all. I’ve been working on it for so long that it feels like my third child… but now it’s time to send that child out in the world. It’s one of the most frightening – and exciting – things I’ve ever done.”

Simon was famously married to James Taylor, and also romanced the likes of Cat Stevens, Kris Kristofferson, Jack Nicholson, Warren Beatty, and Mick Jagger.
