Drew Barrymore has inked a deal with Dutton publishing to pen a series of autobiographical essays.
The actress announced that the essays all include “stories that are personal, emotional and humorous.” Drew Barrymore told People magazine that the book is “meant to be a heavy memoir,” adding that she “love stories that are humorous, emotional and welcoming, and that is my goal in writing this book.”
Drew continued that the book will share her experiences of “living on her own at 14 (and how laundry may have saved her life), “getting stuck in a gas station overhang on a cross-country road trip, saying goodbye to her father in a way only he could have understood, and many more adventures and lessons that have led to the most important thing in her life, which is motherhood.”
This isn’t the first autobiography for Drew. She first released her first memoir “Little Girl Lost” in 1991 when she was 16. She detailed her wild childhood and how she started drinking alcohol at the age of 9, smoked marijuana at 10, and began snorting cocaine by 12. Drew is now happily married to Will Kopelman with two daughters, so the tone of her upcoming memoir will probably won’t be as dark as her first.
