Eminem’s Publicist Clarifies Auto-Biography Information

Posted By on February 20, 2008

Yesterday we reported that Eminem is releasing a new autobigraphy with Orion Publishing Group on October 16th. Now Em's publicist is clearing the air, and letting everyone know the truth. "While there is a book in the works from Eminem in which he details certain aspects of his personal and professional life, the book is still in the process of being written and edited," Dennis Dennehy said in a statement. "There is no firm release date scheduled, although it is anticipated to arrive in the latter part of this year."

The book, titled The Way I Am, will feature unseen photographs of
Eminem as well as hand-drawn art, sketches for lyrics and notes from
journals. The rapper will also write the introduction for the book and provide a present-day narrative. Dennis Dennehy clarified Orion's position in regards to the project by stating
that the UK publisher, "is not involved in the day-to-day editing or
creation of the book." Although fans are excited and can expect the book this year, Eminem's publicist was disappointed that the wrong information was released to the public, "It's unfortunate that someone who does not have intimate knowledge of
the book felt compelled to jump the gun on announcing it by delivering
partial and inaccurate information," Dennehy said.
