Debbie Harry Says Her Autobiography Will Reflect Her 'Full Life'

Debbie Harry says her upcoming memoir was a project she couldn't avoid taking on. She says the memoir will reflect her "full life. The memoir, called "Face It," is due on October 1st via Harper Collins. The book, which blends first-person essays with interviews conducted by journalist Sylvie Simmons, documents her band’s ascent to New Wave fame.

In a statement about the autobiography, which includes previously unseen photos and fan art, Harry admits that the book might wind up as the first installment of a series. “There are many more stories for me to tell; some funny, some scary, some warm, some chill to the bone,” she said. “And ifFace Itappeals to people then I will get to telling more of the anecdotal bits of the story of Blondie – like the time I met Rita Hayworth and Penny Singleton backstage at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles.”
