MY SIDE OF LIFE - AUTOBIOGRAPHY [ADDED CHAPTER]: AMAZON
07 April 2014: Virgin Books is to publish the autobiography of Westlife’s Shane Filan.
Assistant editor Yvonne Jacob acquired world English language rights to My Side of Life, the first autobiography by a member of the band, from Zoe King at the Blair Partnership.
After finding success with Westlife, Filan was declared bankrupt just before the band’s final farewell concert, due to his investments in the Irish property market.
The book will tell the story of his “early years growing up as part of a large Irish family in Co. Sligo, the phenomenal success of Westlife and the ups and downs of their time together, the breakup of the band and his financial devastation, and finally going it alone as a solo artist”.
Jacob said: “As a fellow West of Ireland native, I have followed Shane’s career from the early days of Westlife and I couldn’t be more excited to be publishing his autobiography. From the highs of Westlife’s unprecedented success, to the lows of the financial difficulties he has overcome, Shane has an incredible story to tell.”
Filan said: “I’m very excited about this book. I’ll be telling the truth and I’ll be telling the side of the story people haven’t heard. It will be about everything - the good and the bad. Some it is so incredible you’d think it was fictional. I think it’s going to be a great read.”
My Side of Life: The Autobiography by Shane Filan will be published by Virgin Books in October 2014 in hardback priced at £18.99.
