New York Times Bestselling Author To Pen In-Depth Beyoncé Biography
So there’s a Beyoncé biography in the works.
The in-depth project will be written by New York Times bestselling author J. Randy Taraborrelli, who has written biographies about “Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, the Kennedys and most recently, the Hiltons.” The project is still currently untitled and will be written based off of numerous interviews and research conducted by Taraborrelli.
“Based on exhaustive research by Taraborrelli, including exclusive interviews with the people in the superstar’s life who have been pivotal to her personal and professional development, the biography will explore all facets of Knowles’ life,” the press release announced. “Beginning with her career at the age of seven performing in pageant shows and talent contests and recording her first number one hit record at the age of 18 with her group, Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé has become one of the most successful solo artists of her generation appearing in 2014 on the cover of Time Magazine and at the # 1 spot on Forbes’ annual list of the wealthiest celebrities.”
The biography will be released under Grand Central Publishing, a division of Hatchette Book Group and is scheduled to be released Fall of 2015.
“I can’t think of a more intriguing subject than Beyoncé,” said Taraborrelli. “In terms of research, there’s no road map to follow since this is the first major biography. Therefore, we’re breaking new ground with every chapter. From Destiny’s Child to solo superstardom to her marriage to Jay-Z, Beyoncé has lived a most incredible, inspiring life. I know my readers will enjoy her journey.”
The book will be released in hardcover, digital and audio formats.
