Neil Young Lands Book Deal with Blue Rider Press

Rock legend Neil Young has inked a deal to publish his memoir with Penguin’s Blue Rider Press imprint. Tentatively titled Waging Heavy Peace, publication is set for fall 2012.

Lookout Management manager Elliot Roberts negotiated the deal with Blue Rider publisher David Rosenthal. The publisher launched his new imprint last year.

Young (pictured, in 1970) had this quote in the release: “I felt like writing books fit me like a glove; I started and I just kept going. That’s the way my Daddy used to do it on his old Underwood up in the attic. He said, ‘Just keep writing, you never know what will turn up.’”
