Her er presseskrivet fra Ballantine Books:
New York, NY –September 24, 2015–Ballantine Books, an imprint of Random House, announced today the acquisition and publication of a memoir by actress, talk show host, and reality television star Leah Remini. In the book, Remini shares her deeply moving and eye-opening account of her thirty-year-plus association with the Church of Scientology. Entitled Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology, Remini’s book will be published on November 3, 2015 in the U.S. in hardcover, e-book, and as an audio book read by the author/actress. Executive Editor Pamela Cannon acquired from APA Talent and Literary Agency.
In Troublemaker, Remini, best known as the star of the popular long-running sitcom King of Queens, will detail for the first time her life growing-up in the Church of Scientology and her rise to fame in Hollywood. Indoctrinated into the church as a child while living with her mother and sister in New York, Remini eventually moved to Los Angeles, where her dreams of becoming an actress and advancing Scientology’s causes grew increasingly intertwined. But when she began to raise questions about some of the church’s actions, she found herself a target, which led to her—and her family’s—break from the church. Bold, brash, and bravely confessional, Troublemaker chronicles Leah Remini’s remarkable journey toward emotional and spiritual freedom, both for herself and for her family.
