HarperCollins imprint 4th Estate has revealed it will publish Demi Moore’s “deeply candid and insightful” memoir Inside Out in September - almost a decade after buying it.
It will be published simultaneously with HaperCollins US on 24th September with 4th Estate also publishing in Australia.
The deal for world rights was negotiated by Jonathan Burnham, president and publisher, Harper and Luke Janklow of Janklow & Nesbit Associates back in 2010.
“From iconic film roles to high-profile relationships, Demi Moore has never been far from the spotlight,” the synopsis reads. “Inside Out tells the story behind the headlines.”
“Throughout her rise to fame and during some of the most pivotal moments of her life, Moore battled addiction, body image issues, and childhood trauma that would follow her for years—all while juggling a skyrocketing career, celebrity status, and raising a family. In this emotionally charged memoir, she opens up about her career and personal life—laying bare her defining tumultuous relationship with her mother, her marriages, her struggles balancing stardom with motherhood, and her journey toward open-heartedness.”
The memoir is billed by 4th Estate as “a story of survival, success, and surrender—as well as resilience: a wrenchingly honest portrayal of one woman’s at once ordinary and iconic life”.
A HarperCollins spokesperson said: "Inside Out is first and foremost a woman's story; that the woman in question happens to be one of the most celebrated actresses of our time only makes her journey of vulnerability, strength, and self-acceptance all that more resonant.”
Moore is an actress, producer, director and activist known for roles in films such as “St Elmo’s Fire”, “Ghost” and “Indecent Proposal”. She is also a co-founder of Thorn, a non-profit that builds technology to defend children from sexual abuse, exploitation and trafficking. She was formerly married to actor Bruce Willis, and later actor Ashton Kutcher.
She lives in Los Angeles and Hailey, Idaho.
