Susan Boyle’s Story in Her Own Words


Her exterior masked a singing voice that took the Internet and the music industry by storm, so could Susan Boyle, below, also be concealing a prose style to rival Jane Austen’s or Virginia Woolf’s? The British publisher Transworld is willing to make that bet and has signed up Ms. Boyle, the reality television-turned-recording star, to write her autobiography, BBC News reported. Transworld said the book, which will be called “The Woman I Was Born to Be,” will document Ms. Boyle’s sudden rise after her 2009 appearance on “Britain’s Got Talent,” which led to her best-selling debut album, “I Dreamed a Dream.” A British release is planned for the fall; no American publication date has been announced. In a statement reported by the BBC, Ms. Boyle said she was “writing this book to try to show that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover.” She added: “When I strutted on to the stage for that audition, I was a scared wee lassie, still grieving for my mother, not caring how I looked. I think I’ve grown up a lot in the last year, become more of a lady, and I’m not so frightened anymore.”
