Entertainment Weekly reports that Buzz Bissinger, the journalist who wrote a Vanity Fair story on Jenner back in June 2015, has agreed to collaborate with Jenner to write this book. The publisher has set the release date for Spring 2017.

Here’s more from The New York Times: “The book will cover Ms. Jenner’s childhood as Bruce Jenner and rise to fame as a gold- medal-winning Olympic decathlete; her first two marriages and her troubled relationship with her children; her marriage to Kris Kardashian, the matriarch of the Kardashian brood; her transition and her experience as the world’s most famous transgender woman. In a statement released by Grand Central, Ms. Jenner said she hoped the book would help her to process all that’s happened to her in the past year, and in the decades leading up to her transition.” (via USA Today)
