Linda Ronstadt has landed a book deal with Simon & Schuster for her memoir, Heart Like a Wheel. In the video embedded above, Ronstadt sings the title song from her memoir.
Ronstadt will write the book herself, exploring a career that “bridged the worlds of rock, folk, country, jazz, Latin, and opera.” Steve Wasserman at Kneerim & Williams Agency represented the singer. Publication has been tentatively set for 2013.
Publisher Jonathan Karp had this statement: “Few singers have been as wide-ranging or as distinctive in their artistry … Linda Ronstadt has a singular voice, and that is true on the page as well.”
