L.A. Times: James Garner will publish his memoirs this fall.
THE GARNER FILES: A MEMOIR will be released on November 8, 2011.
It's a bit surprising coming from the private, self-effacing actor. In the press release Garner says "...I didn’t think anyone would care about my life. I’m still a little uncomfortable, but I finally agreed, because people I trust persuaded me people might be interested and because I realized it would allow me to acknowledge those who’ve helped me along the way. I talk about my childhood, try to clear up some misconceptions, and even settle a score or two."
The Amazon listing indicates that Garner's good friend Julie Andrews is writing the book's introduction.
I'll be watching for further details. As a huge Garner fan, this is a book I'll definitely be pre-ordering!
August 2011 Update: Per the Amazon listing, the publication date has been moved up a week, to November 1st.
