Yesterday, I blogged about a new [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Sam Cooke[/lastfm] movie. Today, it’s a new book…about [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Michael Jackson[/lastfm]. Sure, there are countless Michael Jackson stories out there. But, were they written by his brother, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jermaine Jackson[/lastfm]? This book WILL be.

U.S. recording artist and reality TV personality Jermaine Jackson says he is writing a memoir about his late brother Michael.
Touchstone announced Wednesday it will publish “You Are Not Alone, Michael: Through a Brother’s Eyes,” a book that will cover Michael’s personal troubles and career triumphs.
Michael Jackson died June 25, 2009, at age 50. His personal physician is awaiting trial on an involuntary manslaughter charge for allegedly administering lethal levels of anesthesia and sedatives to Michael in an effort to help the eccentric pop star sleep.
“We don’t want Michael’s life — or death — to be an eternal mystery,” USA Today quoted Jermaine as saying in a statement.
“This is the truth as we know it. I have read so much about what people think they know about Michael, but this is about what really happened. I hope to make sense of the occasions when the outside world struggled to understand my brother’s world. Everyone has said it all about Michael and us. They cannot say anything more. Now it is our turn.”
