Pete Doherty to Publish His Personal Diaries
Yup, our favorite crackhead is going to publish his personal diaries.
I'm thinking it will go something like this:
The noir scribblings of the Babyshambles frontman — including drawings, photographs, poems and film reviews — have been culled from 20 volumes of Doherty's personal journals and will be published in hardback in March 2007.
Orion Publishing Group said Wednesday it had purchased world rights to the journals, but Doherty later failed to attend an event to celebrate the deal at London's Boogaloo pub.
The singer had been slated to read an excerpt from one of his poems.
His diaries date back to 1999 — before Doherty first caught the attention of the media with the now disbanded post-punk revival band The Libertines.
Doherty's writings chronicle his rise from anonymity to celebrity, Orion commissioning editor Ian Preece said.
"Some of it is quite funny," Preece told reporters. "But some of it is very, very dark."
