Michael Jackson Bio to be Reprinted in U.S.

51YrOp1YyXL._SS500_.jpgFollowing the pop star’s tragic death last week, Hachette Book Group’s Grand Central Publishing will reprint J. Randy Taraborrelli‘s out-of-print biography on Michael Jackson.

The U.S. edition will include updates about the last five years of the singer’s life, and carry an updated title: “Michael Jackson: The Magic and the Madness, the Whole Story, 1958-2009.” Publication is set for July, and Macmillan UK will reprint the book in the UK.

Here’s a statement from Jamie Raab, Executive VP and Publisher of Grand Central Publishing: “If anyone should have the final word on Michael Jackson, it should be Randy, who has documented accurately his career almost from day one. This book stands as the classic biography on Jackson, and readers have been requesting this updated edition.”
