Pan Macmillan is thrilled to be publishing Elton John’s autobiography – which is coming in October 2019.
The book, which will be the first and only official autobiography of this flamboyant, multiple Grammy-winning international superstar, is being written by Elton John with writer and music critic Alexis Petridis and will be a no holds barred account of Elton’s life and work as the most enduring singer songwriter of his generation.
Elton John says:
‘I’m not prone to being a nostalgic person. I’m often accused of only looking forward to my next gig or creative project. It’s come as quite a surprise how cathartic I am finding the process of writing my memoirs. As I look back, I realise what a crazy life I have had the extreme privilege of living.
‘I have grown up in a period of extraordinary change in our world – and have had the joyful honour of rubbing shoulders and working with so many of the people at the heart of these changes. My life has been one helluva rollercoaster ride and it’s still lumbering on. I hope readers will enjoy the ride too.’
