Parker, 50, announced her memoir, titled Dr. Mr. You, in a press release. “I am so honored and thrilled to be working with Scribner and in the company of such wonderful writers,” said the actress.
As for Scriber, they’re wholly excited to have Parker joining their list of impressive memoirists. “From Frank McCourt to Jeannette Walls to Anjelica Huston, Scribner loves a great memoirist, and Mary-Louise Parker is one,” said Nan Graham, Senior Vice President and Publisher of Scribner. “Her writing is magnificent; the conceit – a memoir in letters to men – is wholly original and brilliantly executed.”
Colin Harrison, vice-presideent and editor-in-chief of Scribner added, “Mary-Louise Parker’s prose is vivid, urgent and emotionally frank.”
Parker has previously published essays and short stories, including one about her father and her son for Esquire in 2012. It's unknown if Parker will be writing letters to he father and son in her memoir, or who else may or may not make the cut.
Parker previously dated actor Billy Crudup, with whom she had her son. She was later engaged to Grey's Anatomy actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan and was last linked to singer Charlie Mars.
