Purple reign: Prince announces he’s writing memoir
NEW YORK — Prince has been pretty prolific in the studio lately, but the pop veteran is apparently finding time to write a memoir.
It was announced Friday that Spiegel & Grau, an imprint of Random House, had acquired the book. And Prince shared the news himself at a Manhattan club that night, telling the crowd, “The good people at Random House made me an offer I can’t refuse.”
Prince revealed that the working title for the book is The Beautiful Ones. A person he referred to as “my brother Dan” is “helping me with it,” he added, “and he’s a good critic…He’s not a ‘yes’ man at all.”
A press release describes the memoir as “an unconventional and poetic journey through (Prince’s) life and creative work — from the family that shaped him and the people, places, and ideas that fired his creative imagination, to the stories behind the music that changed the world.”
The book will be published in fall 2017.
