Patricia Arquette, fresh off of her best supporting actress Oscar win for Boyhood, has signed on to write a memoir, publisher Random House announced Wednesday. A title and publication date were not revealed.
The book will center on her unconventional family (siblings Rosanna, Alexis, Richmond and David Arquette are all performers), becoming a single mother at age 20 and her acting career.
“Patricia Arquette is a remarkable woman,” said publisher Susan Kamil in a statement. “The instant empathy audiences feel when they see her work on screen is completely evident on the page. The material I read is revelatory and deeply moving. Not a surprise from an actress of such nuance and intelligence.”
Added Arquette, “Writing a memoir will be a new and intimate artistic journey for me, and I hope to bring to it the same honesty I have always sought to bring to my work as an actor.”
In addition to her Oscar, Arquette won a best lead actress in a drama Emmy in 2005 for her work on Medium (she was also nominated for a Golden Globe for the show). Other notable roles include Flirting With Disaster, True Romance and the lead in the new series CSI: Cyber.
Arquette, 46, was born in Chicago. Her father, Lewis Arquette, was a well-known character actor and her grandfather, Clifford Arquette was a comedian. She’s been married twice — to Nicolas Cage from 1995 to 2001 and to Thomas Jane from 2006 to 2011 — and she has two children.
Kamil acquired the book for Random House. Arquette was represented by Richard Abate of 3 Arts Entertainment and Joseph Veltre of The Gersh Agency.
