Schwarzenegger to Publish Memoir
He’s back! Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed a deal to write a memoir, tentatively titled Total Recall, which will be published in Oct. 2012. Simon & Schuster is publishing the book though they declined to disclose the advance. Jonathan Karp, the publisher, said in a statement, “Truly, Arnold is one of the most fascinating figures of our time, and one of the greatest success stories in the world. Nobody has a life story even close to his.” Schwarzenegger began writing the book in 2010, and he is working on it with another writer, Peter Petre, who has co-authored several autobiographies.
