We’re very excited about Beth Ditto’s upcoming autobiography, Coal to Diamonds, which is expected to hit shelves in the autumn of 2011. She’s has a debut solo album due out soon too!
Beth is the super-cool front woman for The Gossip and the idol of plus-size women everywhere! She is talented, intelligent, original and fearless with fashion!
“As a 5 foot, 15 stone gay singer, Beth was never going to be ignored,” describes an introductory blurb on www.amazon.co.uk, “but her talent plus her exuberant opinions have made her a heroine for the alternative music scene.”
Beth recently gave her fans this little teaser about her new book: “My life was supposed to be simple and non-negotiable: birth, church, work, marriage, kids, death. But along the way something happened. Coal Into Diamonds is my story – growing up feeling like you are on the margins of society and struggling to find your place. My memoir talks directly to disenfranchised, misunderstood kids everywhere.”
