The Grace Jones story is coming this fall. Take a look at the cover, revealed here for the first time exclusively. 

The model/actress/singer’s much-anticipated memoir, I’ll Never Write My Memoirs, publishes Sept. 29 from Gallery Books.

In an earlier statement announcing the book, Jones explained the title, "I wrote a song called Art Groupie. First line said 'I'll never write my memoirs' — that was a long time ago. Since then, I thought, if I don't do it, somebody else will." 

The Jamaican-born Jones came to the U.S. as a teenager and signed to work as a model at seventeen. She modeled in Paris for Yves Saint-Lauren, roomed with Jerry Hall and had sleepovers with Jessica Lange.

She returned to New York, released three disco albums, collaborated with Andy Warhol and became a Studio 54 fixture. Jones had a third career as an actress, appearing in Conan the Destroyer (with Arnold Schwarzenegger) and A View to a Kill, Roger Moore’s last James Bond film.
