Drew Barrymore Lands Book Deal, Will Write Collection of Autobiographical Essays

Meet Drew's Daughters
Hey Olive, hey Frankie.

Drew Barrymore’s got a lot to say about her life, and she’s going to do it in book form. People reports that the actress has just signed a deal with Dutton to publish a memoir.

The book, which has yet to receive a title, will comprise of a collection of “humorous, emotional and welcoming” autobiographical essays, according to a statement from the 40-year-old actress.

As the publisher notes, the release will contain stories about Barrymore “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.”

This is not the first published work from the mother-of-two. Last year, Barrymore released a collection of personal photos in Find It in Everything. In 1990, the then-troubled young star penned a book about her struggles in rehab in the book Little Girl Lost.


No release date for Barrymore’s memoir has been set.
