John Robison is known in one sphere as the guy who helped KISS concoct their stadium show in the 1970s, customizing guitars to shoot smoke bombs and flames. He’s also the older brother of notorious memoirist Augusten Burroughs. The cred combination may well have helped him land a book deal with Crown for a memoir about his lifelong struggles with Asperger’s Syndrome, the New York Post‘s Keith Kelly reports. The $1.1 million dollar figure is, well, classic New York Post dollars money, but he does get a revealing quote from editor-in-chief Steve Ross. “We pre-empted the book about two hours after we saw the manuscript,” he said about the “darkly comic” proposal. The book is slated to hit stores this fall.
