BOWIE AUTOBIOGRAPHY IN 2011
1st April 2010

JASPER LOOKFOIL Publishing Group (JLPG) have reportedly advanced DAVID BOWIE a whopping $11m for the sole rights to his forthcoming autobiography.

Currently Oprah Winfrey holds the record for the world's highest book advance fee, previously held by former US President Bill Clinton who was reportedly given a $15m advance fee for his autobiography 'My Life'.

The exact publishing date is not available at present, but Jasper Lookfoil are expecting a target release date of no later than the fall of 2011.

A little bird at JLPG tells me the project has had two different working titles, namely 'Sailor Flop' and 'Isolar Pay Fold', and that David has been working on this project on and off for the past 18 months.

As you are no doubt aware, 'Sailor' is the alias that David uses for his postings on his official website and 'Isolar' is the name of his own business company.

Update: A few anagrams...
Jasper Lookfoil (April Fools Joke)
Sailor Flop (April Fools)
Isolar Pay Fold (April Fools Day)
