Gallery Books to Publish Ione Skye’s Memoir, SAY EVERYTHING

New York, NY, June 26, 2024 – Gallery Books will publish actress Ione Skye’s memoir, SAY EVERYTHING: A Memoir. Written with honesty, clarity and candor, Skye, a Gen X icon, shares a life spent in Hollywood and reveals and reflects upon her messy, glamorous, and unapologetically unconventional life.

The daughter of a magnetic ‘60’s It Girl and the folk-singing legend Donovan, Skye chased her absent father’s approval throughout her life and sought warmth through infatuations and affairs with some of the brightest film stars, indie darlings, and musicians of the time.    

Set against a kaleidoscopic backdrop of Topanga Canyon sunsets, Indian ashrams, rock royalty compounds, and the sets of classic late-century films like River’s Edge, Gas Food Lodging, and Wayne’s World, SAY EVERYTHING is a vulnerable and cinematic account of Skye’s evolution to self-acceptance, reconciliation with her father, and a celebration of living and loving out loud.

“As an actress, thinking of my life as a drama helped me keep the painful parts at a distance. Now, as an author, I am able to reconnect with the young woman I was and re-examine my life fully, with clarity and compassion,” said Ione Skye.”

Ione Skye made her film debut opposite Keanu Reeves in River’s Edge, followed by her iconic role as Diane Court in Say Anything. Skye has appeared in other notable film and television projects including Zodiac, Wayne’s WorldFever Pitch, Arrested DevelopmentCamping, Good Girls, Beef, and much more. In addition to acting, Skye is a painter who has exhibited and sold her work for twenty-five years. She is the author of the children’s book, My Yiddish Vacation, and cohost of the weekly podcast Weirder Together. Ione is the mother of two daughters and lives in Los Angeles with her husband, and collaborator, the musician Ben Lee. 

Pamela Cannon, Vice President and Executive Editor at Gallery Books, acquired North American, open market, and audio rights from Erin Hosier at Dunow, Carlson, and Lerner Literary Agency. The author will read the audio. HarperCollins will publish simultaneously in the UK. Gallery Books will publish SAY EVERYTHING on March 4, 2025.
