Prince Memoir Coming Out This Fall
CNN/Stylemagazine.com Newswire | 4/26/2019, 2:04 p.m.
Just weeks before he died in 2016, Prince struck a deal to write a book about his life. He never got to finish what he started -- but a version of it is coming out this fall. The memoir, titled "The Beautiful Ones," will be released on October 29. The announcement comes just after the third anniversary of the pop star's death. The 288-page project will combine the pop star's unfinished manuscript with never-before-seen photos, original scrapbooks and lyric sheets, according to the description from Penguin Random House. Publishing agent Esther Newberg told Vanity Fair in 2018 that Prince delivered about 50 handwritten pages of the manuscript before he died on April 21, 2016 from an accidental fentanyl overdose. The book is made up of four parts - Prince's childhood, early years, candid photos and his original handwritten treatment for "Purple Rain."
