I'll Never Write My Memoirs
400 pages; Gallery Books
Despite the title, Grace Jones recounts her showstopping life in I'll Never Write My Memoirs (Gallery). She was a scene-stealer from day one, born feetfirst and kicking into a Pentecostal family. Whether dressed as Nefertiti astride a motorcycle or brandishing a gun outside a lover's hotel room, she's never failed to provoke. With full-frontal honesty, Jones delivers on her promise: "There will be blood, and thunder."
