Mary Weiland, the estranged wife of STONE TEMPLE PILOTS/ex-VELVET REVOLVER singer Scott Weiland, will publish her memoir, "Fall to Pieces", on October 27, 2009 via William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers. A description of the book reads as follows:
"A visceral, rollercoaster ride inside bipolar disorder, rock 'n' roll, celebrity culture, and the competitive world of modeling from a rock star wife and recovering drug addict
"On the surface, Mary Weiland had a fairy-tale life. She was a highly paid fashion model married to successful rock star Scott Weiland, the notorious frontman for STONE TEMPLE PILOTS and VELVET REVOLVER. Then came the rampage in a Burbank hotel room and the resulting media frenzy that revealed to the world her bipolar disorder and drug abuse.
"In 'Fall to Pieces', Weiland describes the extreme highs and lows of her life, the volatility of which long hinted at mental illness. Working with acclaimed journalist Larkin Warren, Weiland tells her story with refreshing candor, unflinching detail, and more than a little humor. Reminiscent of celebrity memoirs by Tatum O'Neill, Brooke Shields, and Valerie Bertinelli, Weiland's story offers a window into the world of modeling and rock 'n' roll celebrity while providing deep insights into a serious and misunderstood psychological disorder."
