Emily Ratajkowski announced via Instagram earlier this month that she is working on a collection of essays titled My Body , due to be published in 2022. My Body will focus on the topics of consent, power, and body image and detail Ratajkowski’s experiences of these issues through her life as a model.
This will not be Ratajkowski’s first foray into writing; she recently wrote an essay that went viral for The Cut, which explored the question of when a model owns her image. According to The Bookseller, the article garnered over one million views within the first 24 hours of its publication.
Katy Follian, publisher for Quercus Books, which bought the UK rights for the upcoming collection, commented that “I have rarely experienced an editorial meeting such as the one in which I presented Emily’s book. The groundswell of support, admiration, and excitement from my Generation Z female colleagues right through to my older ones was incredible. Emily speaks for women of all generations, which shows how important and urgent these conversations still are. Thanks to Emily’s eloquence and sharp writing, we can bang the drum harder than ever and take things to another level.”
