Shania Twain will speak about her recent divorce in an autobiography that she is set to pen, reports The Associated Press. The country superstar announced yesterday (22nd September 2010) that the book will cover her difficult childhood, which included the death of her mother, alongside her journey to becoming one of the biggest selling acts in music history.
The 45-year-old will document her recent marital troubles and the eventual split from music producer Robert Lange. Twain said that the couple's problems created "a sudden urgency to document my life before I ran out of time." The autobiography, which is currently untitled, will be published by Atria Books and is set for release in the Spring 2011.
Meanwhile, it has been announced that the Grammy Award winning musician will front her own show on Oprah Winfrey's forthcoming network. Twain will host the show entitled 'Why Not? With Shania Twain' - it is currently scheduled to debut in early 2011. She rose to prominence in the 1990s with hits like 'Man! I Feel Like a Woman!', however, she has gone on to become one of the world's biggest selling artists. Back in April, Twain returned to American Idol as a guest mentor for a week which saw the top 6 contestants cover her songs.
