Debbie Harry’s New Memoir ‘Face It’ Due Out In October

481 0

NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) – Debbie Harry will release her previously announced memoir, Face It, on October 1st via Harper Collins. The book, which blends first-person essays with interviews conducted by journalist Sylvie Simmons, documents the Blondie frontwoman’s life story as well as her band’s ascent to New Wave fame.

In a statement about the autobiography, which includes previously unseen photos and fan art, Harry admits that the book might wind up as the first installment of a series: “There are many more stories for me to tell; some funny, some scary, some warm, some chill to the bone,” she said. “And if Face It appeals to people then I will get to telling more of the anecdotal bits of the story of Blondie – like the time I met Rita Hayworth and Penny Singleton backstage at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles.

“This book is biographical and covers a lot of years,” she adds. “I know there will be questions asked because, in putting this together, I realized I have led a very full life and couldn’t possibly cover everything in just one volume. I’m prepared for the best and the worst comments, much like when I have released an album or done a big show. I don’t have a thick skin, but I do have a pretty good sense of humor.”

This summer, ahead of the book’s release, Blondie will team with Elvis Costello & the Imposters for a joint U.S. tour that launches July 20th in Bethel, New York and wraps August 10th in Seattle, Washington.
