Inside Out, in gestation for almost a decade, is a 'wrenchingly honest... emotionally charged memoir'
Fourth Estate and HarperCollins US yesterday announced the publication date of September 24 for Demi Moore’s Inside Out. The deal for world rights was negotiated by Jonathan Burnham, president and publisher, Harper and Luke Janklow of Janklow & Nesbit Associates. Fourth Estate will publish simultaneously in the UK and Australia.
According to the acquisition statement: 'From iconic film roles to high-profile relationships, Demi Moore has never been far from the spotlight. Inside Out tells the story behind the headlines.
'Throughout her rise to fame and during some of the most pivotal moments of her life, Moore battled addiction, body image issues, and childhood trauma that would follow her for years—all while juggling a skyrocketing career, celebrity status, and raising a family.
'In this emotionally charged memoir, she opens up about her career and personal life—laying bare her defining tumultuous relationship with her mother, her marriages, her struggles balancing stardom with motherhood, and her journey toward open heartedness. Inside Out is a story of survival, success, and surrender - as well as resilience: a wrenchingly honest portrayal of one woman’s at once ordinary and iconic life.'
A Harper Collins spokesperson said: "Inside Out is first and foremost a woman's story; that the woman in question happens to be one of the most celebrated actresses of our time only makes her journey of vulnerability, strength, and self-acceptance all that more resonant. I think readers are going to be surprised, and moved, by this book, which we are extremely proud to publish."
The book was first reported by BookBrunch in June 2010. The value of the joint US/UK deal was then put at $2m, Clare Reihill handling Fourth Estate's end, with a putative publication date of spring 2012.
