Eminem to publish his memoirs

Journal notes, unseen pictures and art to be released this year

Eminem will publish his memoirs in a new book, ‘Eminem: The Way I Am’, on October 16.

The book, published by Orion Books, will feature unseen photographs of the rapper, as well as journal notes, hand-drawn art and lyric sketches, as well as a narrative and introduction written by the star.

Ian Preece of Orion Books is claiming that the publishing of the book will be a huge literary event.

“Everyone has their own take on Eminem,” he said in a statement.

“Because of where he is from, people think they know where he is at, what kind of person he really is. This book cuts through all that and gets to the source. It has an edge. It’ll be one of the books of the year.”
