Amanda Knox Signs $4 Million Book Deal With HarperCollins
Amanda Knox has agreed to a nearly $4 million book deal where she’ll discuss the struggles in her life following her trial and four-year imprisonment in Italy over the murder of her British roommate, ABC News reports.
Knox will release her memoirs through HarperCollins and will be published in early 2013.
“Knox will give a full and unflinching account of the events that led to her arrest in Perugia and her struggles with the complexities of the Italian judicial system,” according to HarperCollins.
“Aided by journals she kept during her imprisonment, Knox will talk about her harrowing experience at the hands of the Italian police and later prison guards and inmates. She will reveal never-before-told details surrounding her case, and describe how she used her inner strength and strong family ties to cope with the most challenging time of her young life.”
Knox was detained in Italy in November 2007 and charged with the murder of Meredith Kercher; she was released in October 2010 following a retrial.
