Amanda Knox’s memoir — detailing her lengthy imprisonment and high-drama court case in Italy — won’t be out until April, but a few details of the forthcoming book have been leaked.
Amanda Knox’s memoir will hit bookstore shelves at the end of April in 2013, a bit later than expected. The former prisoner, now repatriated and free for more than a year, has been out of the public eye for much of the time since her surprise release in 2011.
ABC explains that while literary success may follow Amanda Knox’s memoir, the American former student isn’t out of the woods yet legally, and as surprising as it may seem, the case still dogs the young woman despite her release last year:
“Italian prosecutors, who are appealing Knox’s release from prison and want her murder conviction reinstated, are due to appear in court March 25 … Knox, now 25, was convicted in December 2009 for the 2007 murder of her British roommate, Meredith Kercher, in the Italian city of Perugia. Knox’s Italian boyfriend at the time, Raffaele Sollecito, was also convicted.”
Amanda Knox’s memoir details the murder trial and the events leading up to it from her perspective, one that we’ve only heard in small bits amid the intrigue surrounding the case.
Amanda Knox memoir joins that of one-time lover and fellow defendant Raffaele Sollecito, titled Honor Bound, My Journey to Hell and Back With Amanda Knox. Sollecito’s own account was published earlier this year, and while the pair have not openly reconciled romantically, they admit to keeping in touch via Skype and email after their joint ordeal wound down in 2011.
The Amanda Knox memoir will be titled “Waiting to Be Heard.”
