Random House Canada to publish McGarrigle memoir

One of Canada’s most beloved musical families, the McGarrigles, will recount their personal and artistic history in a new memoir published by Random House Canada.

The book will be co-written by Anna McGarrigle “ who was one half of the folk duo Kate and Anna McGarrigle along with her sister Kate, who died in 2010 “ and her elder sister Jane, who managed their career for nearly 20 years.

In a press release, Random House Canada associate editor Amanda Lewis, who acquired world rights to the book, says, “This will be a quintessentially Canadian book of the best kind, encapsulating Anna and Jane’s Irish-French background, growing up in Saint-Sauveur and Montreal, and launching stellar international careers in the music industry. It will also speak to the important (sometimes lifesaving) role of sisters, and will be a deeply moving book that captures the profound importance of the sibling relationship.”

The memoir will be released October 2015.
