Here’s When Anne Heche’s Memoir She Wrote Before She Died Will Be Released

The memoir will consist of personal anecdotes of her rise to fame, her relationship with Ellen DeGeneres, her encounter with Harvey Weinstein and more.

Anne Heche tragically died following a fiery car crash on August 5 in the Mar Vista neighbourhood of Los Angeles. However, fans can now know more about the late actress in the sequel to Anne Heche’s first book which is set to release on Jan. 24, 2023.

The memoir will detail Heche’s struggles with mental health while living in the public eye, as well as her trauma resulting from childhood abuse and her high-profile past relationship with DeGeneres, which lasted three years until they split in 2000. The 140-page memoir is dubbed Call Me Anne, and the book’s publisher and distributor, Viva Editions and Simon & Schuster, promises the book is as personal as it gets while “offering a peek inside the mind of the late Emmy-award winning actress.”

The memoir will consist of “personal anecdotes of her rise to fame: how Harrison Ford became her on-set mentor, her relationship with Ellen DeGeneres, her encounter with Harvey Weinstein, her history of childhood sexual abuse, her relationship with God, her journey to love herself, and more.”

The memoir is also being described as a “part self-acceptance workbook” consisting of “personal stories [that] are interwoven with poems, prompts, and exercises that got Anne through tough times.” In an excerpt obtained by The Associated Press, Heche recalls the label she was anointed with amid her relationship with DeGeneres.

Heche wrote in the book, “I was labelled ‘outrageous’ because I fell in love with a woman. I had never been with a woman before I dated Ellen.” “I did not, personally, identify as a lesbian. I simply fell in love! It was, to be clear, as odd to me as anyone else. There were no words to describe how I felt,” she continues. “Gay didn’t feel right, and neither did straight.”

Anne also penned in the book, “Alien might be the best fit, I sometimes thought. What, why, and how I fell in love with a person instead of their gender, I would have loved to have answered if anyone had asked, but as I said earlier, no one ever did. I am happy that I was able to tell you in this book, once and for all.” The Associated Press also reported that Heche signed her book deal in May and she turned in her manuscript shortly before she died.
