Gessle to write book about his life

STOCKHOLM - Per Gessle is going to write book about his life. Now the truth behind the rows with Gyllene Tider, his love to Åsa and success with Marie Fredriksson may become public.

  Co-writer Sven Lindström, who is a copywriter and music journalist (at Sydsvenskan) who has interviewed Per several times over the years, says that the book should probably arrive next year. Sven has also written several sleeve notes for Roxette.

  Anna Tillman, PR and information manager at publisher Albert Bonniers, says "For now we're aiming for the Swedish market, but of course this is the kind of book we're bringing to the book fairs in Frankfurt and London." She continues "It's an authorized biography. Everyone's involved. Per Gessle has given us full access to his archives so we have a lot of material. It's fun with artists that have documented so much over the years."

  Anna also mentions that the book is scheduled for the spring of 2007.
