Mitch Winehouse To Publish Memoir About His Troubled Daughter
Well, you probably saw this coming. In the wake of her demise, singer/songwriter Amy Winehouse will have a memoir penned posthumously by none other than her father, Mitch Winehouse. To the obvious first reaction of “He’s just trying to profit off his daughter’s death,” Mr. Winehouse has publicly stated that all proceeds will go to a foundation set up in Amy’s name, specifically to “help children who are disadvantaged through illness and substance addiction.”
Mr. Winehouse is also looking for personal closure with the project, stating, “I also need to write the book as part of my recovery.”
A deal has been signed with HarperCollins with a release date set for the summer of 2012. The book, entitled, Amy: My Daughter is being described as a “heartfelt and revelatory memoir.”
Amy Winehouse was found dead in her North London home on July 23rd.
