If you aren’t Keeping Up With The Kardashians, you might be keeping up with Caitlyn Jenner. The newest bit of news on Cait’s front is that she is set to write a memoir with Buzz Bissinger!
The memoir will be a full account of her life before Caitlyn and her life after she went through her public gender transition.
Working on the project with her will be Buzz Bassinger. It’s not the first time that the two have worked together. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you may remember the Vanity Fair cover story last June which features Caitlyn’s first unveiling of her new self. That story…that was Bassinger!
Grand Central announced on Tuesday that they will be publishing the memoir and are aiming to have it released in spring 2017. They said the memoir will “chronicle her journey from Bruce to Caitlyn, and her brave transition into womanhood.”
It’s been an absolute whirlwind for Caitlyn and taking the time to write down her experience will give her a chance to digest everything. She said:
“Things have been moving so quickly that it will be nice to slow things down a bit and take the proper time to reflect on this journey.”
She trusts Bissinger to tell her story because of the relationship they’ve built and the bond they share because of similar experiences. Bissinger interviewed with New York Times and told them that he, himself, has experimented with his gender and being open about that with Caitlyn has strengthened their friendship. He said:
“I’ve also been open about cross-dressing and certain aspects of gender fluidity, and that created a bond.”
But it’s not all fun and games. Bassinger is keeping it in the forefront of his mind that this needs to be a full account of her transition in order for the book to be genuine and authentic which is what will make the memoir significant. He said:
“I made it clear to her before I agreed that everything has to be on the table, nothing can be left out, and I’m going to be interviewing dozens of other people. It’s her book, but it’s going to be reported out to keep her honest. She’s been incredibly open, and I think it has the potential to be a really important book.”
