Mike Tyson Shops Tell-All Memoirs to Select Publishers


via NY Post

MIKE Tyson is ready to spill the beans. But the one-time heavyweight champ doesn’t want any leaks, so his book proposal is being seen by only five publishers. “It is similar to the way the Kurt Cobain journals were sold, which went for $4 million. Just eight people were invited down to the Inn on Irving Place to view Kurt’s actual journals and hear his unreleased song,” said an insider. “The book went on to be a No. 1 best-seller.”

Tyson started writing while he was in prison. “Me and my cellmate would read to each other at night,” Tyson told one editor. “One night I would read out loud to him, the next night he would read out loud to me. And we would do that back and forth until the book was completed.”
