Anjelica Huston Lands Book Deal for Memoir

Actress Anjelica Huston has inked a book deal with Scribner for her memoir. Publication is set for 2013. “I want to look back at the landscapes that formed me—the exceptional highs and lows I have experienced,” the actress (pictured, via Robert Fleischauer) explained in the release.

Senior vice president Nan Graham acquired the book and will edit. Bill Clegg from William Morris Endeavor negotiated the deal. Simon & Schuster U.K. will simultaneously publish the memoir in England.

Here’s more about the book: “Written by the Oscar-winning actress herself, the memoir will recount her storied life and career, including her childhood in Ireland, her parents’ distant marriage, her complicated relationship with her father, actor and director John Huston, the tragic death of her mother Enrica Soma, her appearances in films such as Prizzi’s Honor and The Grifters, her years with Jack Nicholson, and her marriage to the artist Robert Graham.”
