Before his passing three years ago, Prince was working on a memoir and now we finally get to see it soon.The Beautiful Ones was first announced in March of 2016, a month after he passed at the age of 57. The publishing agent, Esther Newberg, revealed that the artist submitted about 50 handwritten pages for his memoir. The book will be about 300 pages long.
Prince had chosen New Yorker, Dan Pipenbring, as a collaborator to write the introduction of the book.
The book will span from Prince’s childhood to his early years as a musician. It will also include lyrics, scrapbooks, and rare pictures of the artists’ life.
The book’s editor, Chris Jackson, said in a statement The Beautiful Ones was “a beautiful tribute to his life.”
“It’s also much more than that: it’s a genuinely moving and energizing literary work, full of Prince’s ideas and vision, his voice and image,” said Jackson, whose other authors have included comedian Trevor Noah and journalist Ta-Nehisi Coates. “It’s a treasure not just for Prince fans but for anyone who wants to see one of our greatest creative artists and original minds at work on his greatest creation: himself.”
The memoir is expected to premiere October 29th. What will you be looking for in the upcoming project?
