Two prominent figures have announced upcoming memoirs.
One is author Hanif Kureishi, who has been updating the world on both his physical and mental condition via social media, after a serious fall and subsequent paralysis last December.
The Guardian reports that Kureishi will expand on this material in Shattered, which is expected out in 2024.
Another person who suffered a highly publicized injury is also working on a memoir: Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai.
The Associated Press reports that there's no title or release date available yet, but she describes it as her most personal book yet.
Yousafzai's publisher expanded further, calling it a "breathtaking story of recovery and search for identity, a candid exploration of her coming-of-age in the public spotlight, and an intimate look at her life today."
This book will also have a young-reader and picture version, according to the AP.
Yousafzai, of course, gained fame for her activism for female education and the Taliban's assassination attempt on her for it.
