Caitlyn Jenner Teases A New Autobiography, ‘The Secrets Of My Life’
Caitlyn Jenner has annponced a name and release date of her upcoming book on Monday, already promising to be jam-packed full of “secrets.”
Jenner revealed the title, The Secrets of My Life, on social media, hinting a glimpse into her hidden life, away from the cameras.
According to a New York Times report published in January, the transgender icon and former Olympic legend is publishing a memoir that will focus on her life and transition. Jenner is said to be teaming up with Buzz Bissinger, the Pulitzer Prize–winning writer behind Friday Night Lights.
The 66-year-old reality TV star has kept extremely busy since she came out as transgender back in April 2015. “Things have been moving so quickly that it will be nice to slow things down a bit and take the proper time to reflect on this journey,” Jenner confessed earlier this year. “I couldn’t pick a better team, in Grand Central and Buzz, to make sure this story is told with a lot of honesty and care.”
Bissinger, who wrote the story that accompanied Jenner’s groundbreaking July 2015 Vanity Fair cover, hinted the powerful message behind the book. “It’s really about pain; it’s about isolation. It’s about fear, and it’s about the vast difficulty of being different,” Bissinger told the Daily News in January. “If I didn’t think this had the potential to be a great book and an important book, I wouldn’t do it.”
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star documented her journey with her E! docuseries, I Am Cait, which was dealing with her life after coming out as transgender, for two seasons. It has since been canceled.
Jenner also partnered with MAC on a lipstick for the label’s AIDS Fund and spoke out about her own experience at various events.
The memoir will serve as the latest medium for the star to share her journey toward womanhood. Indeed, some fans slammed the Jenner recently for her right-wing political views throughout American’s presidential election, and also for telling Ellen DeGeneres she originally against gay marriage back in September 2015.
Her previous books were all published before her transition under the name Bruce Jenner. The Secrets of My Life will be her seventh book – the first one under her new name – and will drop on April 25, 2017.
