Random House Signs ’90s Darling Liz Phair to Two-Book Deal

Book publisher Random House has acquired two titles by influential singer and songwriter Liz Phair. Her debut album “Exile in Guyville,” released in 1993, put Phair on the map for melding provocative lyrics with a pop flair. She quickly became a darling of the indie rock community.

Phair’s first book, entitled “Horror Stories,” is described as “a rich and kaleidoscopic memoir of Phair’s experiences with fame, heartbreak, motherhood, and everything in between.”

Said Phair: “I have been writing stories and essays for the past decade, creating a world on the page that excites me as much as my songwriting. I’m thrilled and proud to join the ranks of such a venerable publisher as Random House.”

Executive Editor Mark Warren calls Phair’s writing voice “rare and powerful and new.”

Phair is represented by literary agent Jennifer Gates of Aevitas Creative Management.
