Former child star Macaulay Culkin is turning to his troubled childhood for
inspiration in his new career as a writer.
The Home Alone actor, 25, who famously "divorced" his parents to gain
control of his $17 million (GBP8.9 million) fortune, has signed a deal with
MIRAMAX BOOKS, reports gossip site PAGESIX.COM.
A statement says Culkin's novel JUNIOR is "a dizzying kaleidoscope of
words and images. Culkin takes readers on a twisted tour of the darkest corners
of his fertile imagination.
"Part memoir, part rant, part comedic tour de force, Junior is full of the
hard-won wisdom of Culkin's quest to come to terms with the awesome pressures
of childhood mega-stardom and family dysfunction."
