Drew Barrymore Working on Collection of Revealing Autobiographical Essays
Drew Barrymore is set to tell her life story in a collection of autobiographical essays.
The star will lift the lid on the details of her wild youth and Hollywood career in a series of stories after signing a deal with Dutton book publishers.
A statement from the company reads, “(The essays will tells stories of Barrymore) living on her own at 14 (and how laundry may have saved her life), getting stuck in a gas station overhang on a cross-country road trip, saying goodbye to her father in a way only he could have understood, and many more adventures and lessons that have led to the most important thing in her life, which is motherhood.”
Barrymore, who is mother to two daughters, tells People.com, “I love stories that are humorous, emotional and welcoming, and that is my goal in writing this book.”
The actress’ essay collection currently has no title or set release date. She published a book of her photographs last year.
