The world was shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of Lisa Marie Presley in January 2023, at the age of just 54.

Now, it has been revealed that Lisa Marie’s daughter, actress Riley Keough, is honouring her memory by helping to complete her memoir which will be released in late 2024.

Titled From Here to the Great Unknown, the book will chronicle Lisa Marie’s life.

The cover features a photo of Lisa Marie as a child alongside her father, Elvis Presley.

Publishing house, Random House announced the news of the memoir saying, “We are honoured today to share the cover and the title of this much-anticipated memoir. Born to an American myth and raised in the wilds of Graceland, Lisa Marie Presley tells her whole story for the first time in From Here to the Great Unknown, a raw, riveting, one-of-a-kind memoir faithfully completed by her daughter, Riley Keough.

The book will be released on 15 October 2024, and is available for preorder now.

Fans of Lisa Marie took to the comments to express their excitement and eagerness to get their hands on a copy of their own.

“I pre-ordered it the second it was announced. I know Riley did so right by her mum. I’m thrilled Lisa will still have her story told. Xx 🤍,” one person said.

“I am very excited about this one. Lisa Marie was a contemporary of mine – born just a couple years after me and she really was an enigma of sorts. I’m anxious to hear her story. I hope Riley reads the audiobook,” another shared.

According to PEOPLE magazine, Lisa Marie first asked for Riley’s assistance in finishing the memoir in 2022.

The Graceland website released a statement in January 2024 where they confirmed the upcoming book and gave details about the mother-daughter collaboration.

“Like most of us do with asks from our parents, Riley pushed off the project, feeling that there would be a right time for them to sit down together and finish it. 

“But, after Lisa Marie’s unexpected death last year, Riley carried a guilt that the world would never know the loving, joyful, and caring woman that she knew and grieved.”

Luckily, Lisa Marie had recorded numerous hours worth of tape for the book, and Riley decided it was time for the world to hear her mother’s story.

Riley said, “Few people had the opportunity to know who my mom really was, other than being Elvis’s daughter. I was lucky to have had that opportunity and working on preparing her autobiography for publication has been a privilege, albeit a bittersweet one. 

“I’m so excited to share my mom now, at her most vulnerable and most honest, and in doing so, I do hope that readers come to love my mom as much as I did.”
