Drew Barrymore is working on her second book, this one an autobiography in the form of personal essays.
Dutton publishing made the announcement yesterday, saying the still untitled book “will include stories about living on her own at 14 (and how laundry may have saved her life), getting stuck in a gas station overhang on a cross country road trip, saying goodbye to her father in a way only he could have understood, and many more adventures and lessons that have led to the most important thing in her life, which is motherhood."
"I love stories that are humorous, emotional and welcoming, and that is my goal in writing this book," Barrymore said in a statement.
Ben Sevier, Publisher of Dutton, added: "We are thrilled to welcome Drew Barrymore, a true American icon, to the Dutton list, and can't wait to help bring her wonderful writing to the world."
Barrymore released her first book last year. Called Find It In Everything, the book was a collection of photos that Barrymore had shot herself over the course of 10 years, each displaying a heart among random objects.
Barrymore’s autobiography doesn’t have a release date yet.
