Shortly before his death in 2016, Prince announced plans to publish a memoir. Although the book was not completed, a portion was written and that is now set to be published.

Interviewed on Variety’s ‘Strictly Business’ podcast, literary agent Esther Newberg of ICM Partners, who handled the book deal, said that it’s hoped that work will be published “next Christmas”.

“He wrote about 50 pages in his own handwriting”, she explains, adding that “it’ll be a wonderful testament to a great songwriter and performer”.

The book, she says, is “about his family”. The exact form it will take when published is not yet clear, but, she says, “he it wrote himself and he wrote it in longhand and what we may do is show the real pages”.
