Rather than channeling her pain into sad country songs, Shania Twain has written a memoir chronicling her tumultuous life. Atria Books, an imprint of Simon and Schuster, will publish the still untitled book in spring 2011.
In the memoir, Twain will discuss the tragic death of her mother and stepfather that led to her raising her siblings, her struggle to break into the male-dominated world of country music, and her recent divorce.
In a press release posted on her website  Twain says, “There have been moments in my life I was concerned by the reality that tomorrow would never come. Recently I experienced one of those moments to an intensity that brought on a sudden urgency to document my life before I ran out of time, before I had the opportunity to share an honest and complete account of my life, in my own words. There are times in your life that are meant for reflection, and this was one of them. I began writing this book with a sincere respect for the past, present and future as something never to be taken for granted.”
