In case you haven’t heard enough about Eminem, Crown has cut a six-figure deal with Rolling Stone writer Anthony Bozza for an unauthorized biography of the rap star. ”It’s not a cut-and-paste story,” says Crown editor Carrie Thornton. ”It’s really examining him as a cultural phenomenon.” ”Whatever You Say I Am” (the line comes from the track ”The Way I Am” on ”The Marshall Mathers LP”) will be out next fall.
