Singer Lily Allen has signed a deal to write her memoirs with the book due to be published next year.
In the as-yet-untitled book, she will write about the trauma and grief of losing a child, the highs and lows of fame, her family story, growing up in Britpop, Glastonbury and the infamous Groucho club, as well as about “the rebellion of her youth”, money, co-dependency, drug and alcohol dependency, eating disorders, marriage, separation, recovery, motherhood and “moving forward with her life”.
Allen said: “Some of it I think might be uncomfortable and shocking and brutal. There will be good stuff in there too; happy times. I will try and make it funny. I know it’s about me but I hope that a lot of it will ring true with anyone who reads it. It won’t be written with shame. It will be true.”
The book will be published in autumn 2018.
