Bono to release memoir about ‘the people, places and possibilities’ of his life
Surrender, which will ‘draw in detail’ what he had previously only sketched in songs, will contain 40 chapters, each named after a U2 song, and include 40 original drawings by the singer
The first memoir by Bono will be released this year, publisher Penguin Random House has announced.
While the U2 frontman’s career has been written about extensively, this will mark the first time Bono has written about it himself. Titled Surrender, the autobiography will span the singer’s early days growing up in Dublin, including the sudden loss of his mother when he was 14, the success of U2 and his activist work fighting against Aids and poverty.
Surrender is due to be published on 1 November.
