Default Anne Murray is penning memoirs

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servl...ry/WBBooksblog

Globe and Mail arts writer Michael Posner is on board to help Canada's songbird Anne Murray writer her memoirs, it was announced today by Knopf Canada.

Posner is expected to start work on the book, tentatively called "All of Me," within the next week or two, aiming to have a manuscript completed by late spring for a fall 2009 publication.

Knopf won the rights to Murray's story in a bidding war orchestrated last year by her literary agent (and former record executive) Arnold Gosewich and her long-time manager, Vancouver's Bruce Allen.

Murray, who turns 64 in June, has told Posner she doesn't want the book to be a strictly first-person story and has given the okay for interviews with friends, associates and family including her ex-husband Bill Langstroth.

Well, she is a trusting soul to let them interview her ex husband for inclusion in her memoirs.

It does sound interesting. I think she is a wonderful artist.

Can't wait for this one. I interviewed her last year - she is a truly lovely lady.
