Marilyn Monroe Writings to be Published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux

mmsecret.pngIn October, Farrar, Straus and Giroux will publish Fragments, a collection of writings by the late, great Marilyn Monroe. The collection will include poems, letters, photos, and other writings.

Anna Strasberg–who handles the Marilyn Monroe estate–brought some “never-before-seen writings” to family friend Stanley Buchthal and Editions du Seuil editor Bernard Comment. The pair served as editors on the collection. The Monroe bookshelf is growing this year. In September, the Hachette imprint Grand Central Publishing will release J. Randy Taraborrelli‘s The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe (pictured).

Here’s more from the release: “[It is] a work unique on the shelf of books about Marilyn Monroe: a collection of her own writings that reveals a very different side to a great star. Fragments will also contain a small collection of rarely seen photographs as well as reproductions of selected documents-mostly handwritten in Monroe’s own hand, some of them typed.”

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.”

Reprinting Michael Jackson

Moonwalker-The-Storybook-cover.jpgIn the wake of Michael Jackson‘s tragic death last week, Macmillan decided to reprint 85,000 copies of Michael Jackson: The Magic and the Madness–a biography by J. Randy Taraborrelli.

According to Bookseller, the book has jumped to the top of the Amazon bestseller list, and is currently listed out-of-stock in the UK. Last week GalleyCat collected the books Jackson wrote during his lifetime, and we wonder if any reprints are scheduled for these long out-of-print titles.

Here’s more from the article: “However, no new book on Jackson appears to have been commissioned since Taraborrelli’s book, and this is the only title on the singer in Amazon.co.uk’s top 100 list.”
