Blondie’s Debbie Harry has announced that she will publish an autobiography later this year titled ‘Face It’.
Written with music journalist Sylvie Simmons, the book delves into Harry’s music career, as well as other work in art and film.
“I didn’t want to, but I did”, says Harry of writing the book, before hinting that she’s now got the urge to carry on. “There are many more stories for me to tell; some funny, some scary, some warm, some chill to the bone and if ‘Face It’ appeals to people then I will get to telling more of the anecdotal bits of the story of”.
“This book is biographical and covers a lot of years”, she goes on. “I know there will be questions asked because in putting this together, I realised I have led a very full life and couldn’t possibly cover everything in just one volume. I’m prepared for the best and the worst comments, much like when I have released an album or done a big show. I don’t have a thick skin, but I do have a pretty good sense of humour”.
Ed Faulkner of publisher HarperCollins adds: “It is the most immense privilege to be publishing Debbie Harry’s extraordinary memoir at HarperNonFiction. Hers is the voice of a generation, with resonance as powerful now as it was 40 years ago, and ‘Face It’ is the honest, powerful story of a true icon”.
The book is set for publication on 1 Oct.
