The book on Da Capo Press will cover some of the darkest moment’s of Wilson’s life, including his highly publicized nervous breakdown and his “dangerous relationship with therapist Dr. Gene Landy.” Pitchfork has an excerpt of the book. Check it out:

My life has been written about over and over again, and that’s mostly okay with me. Other people can talk about my life. Sometimes they’ll get it right and sometimes they’ll get it wrong. For me, when I think back across my own life, there are so many things that are painful. Sometimes I don’t like discussing them. Sometimes I don’t even like remembering them. But as I get older, the shape of that pain has changed. Sometimes memories come back to me when I least expect them.
