Fangirls, Get Your Reading Glasses Ready: Zayn Is Writing a Book

Delacorte The cover of Zayn's book, 'Zayn.'

Sarah Begley is a staff writer for TIME.

The book is a "photographic journey of his life"

It’s official: Zayn has reached the “publish a book” phase of fame.

The former One Direction singer, who has since gone solo and released the album Mind of Mine, will publish an autobiography this fall. The book, titled Zayn, is described by its publisher in a press release as “a photographic journey of his life. He opens up with a collection of thoughts, inspirations, personal stories, notes and drawings, and never-before-seen personal photographs.” In the opening pages, Zayn writes, “I’m going to show you as much as I can so that you can judge me on my own terms, not on what the press or anyone else says.”

Zayn is slated for publication by Delacorte Press on Nov. 1.
