“The Beautiful Ones is the deeply personal account of how Prince Rogers Nelson became the Prince we know,” read a statement from the company. “The real-time story of a kid absorbing the world around him and creating a persona, an artistic vision, and a life, before the hits and the fame that would come to define him.”
The 288-page book, which was announced only weeks before Prince died, is being published with the cooperation of his estate.
