Cyndi Lauper has written the story of her life in Cyndi Lauper: A Memoir. The book will be released on September 18 via Atria Books, a subsidiary of Simon & Schuster.
The book will cover all of Lauper's life from her childhood to when she hit it big in the 80's and beyond. Per Lauper, "Sometimes I Come Off Good, sometimes not so good but I never wanted this book to be anything but my truth. It's not about what people think of me, but what I learned along the way. And if telling the story of what I went through can help someone else, then it's worth it."
'Most of us think of Cyndi as the free-spirited girl who just wants to have fun and her many die-hard fans will be surprised to know her real life story,' says Judith Curr, Executive Vice President and Publisher, Atria Books.
