Eminem memoir due in the fall


Eminem is working on a book that's "every bit as raw and uncensored as the man himself," according to his publisher. Dutton Books, an imprint of the Penguin Group, will publish the rapper's "The Way I Am" in the fall.

"It will be illustrated with never-before-seen photographs of Eminem's home and life along with original drawings," Dutton said in a statement.

An Eminem spokesperson said the memoir "is still in the process of being written and edited."

The book was described as an intimate look inside the life of Eminem, who has sold tens of millions of records since he made his provocative debut in 1999.

"Offering a window on the star's private thoughts on everything from his music and the trials of fame to his love for his daughter, Hailie, this title is every bit as raw and uncensored as the man himself," Dutton said.

Eminem has published one other book, "Angry Blonde." The 2002 work detailed his lyrics.

The rapper has not released a new album since 2004's "Encore," and his representative said there's no CD scheduled to be released at present.
