Random House announced Wednesday that they will publish a memoir written by Patricia Arquette.
The Academy Award, Golden Globe and Emmy award-winning actress will focus on her life growing up in the storied Arquette family, which includes “Pulp Fiction” actress Rosanna Arquette and “Scream” star David Arquette.
Arquette will also write about being a single mother at the age of 20 and her experience as a woman in Hollywood. She made waves at the Academy Awards when she spoke in favor of wage equality during her acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actress.
A fourth-generation actor, whose eclectic and celebrated career has spanned the last three decades, Arquette is the great-granddaughter of vaudeville performers and granddaughter of the late comedian Cliff Arquette, who was best known for his character Charley Weaver, a character he created for the “Jack Paar Show.”
Along with Rosetta Getty, she is the co-founder of GiveLove, founded to assist displaced families after the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti. The organization provides relief, sanitation and construction projects for communities in need.
Arquette currently stars on the CBS drama “CSI: Cyber,” in which she plays Special Agent Avery Ryan. She and her team work tirelessly to track and stop the most dangerous criminals on the deep web.
“Over the years, the public has come to know aspects of me through my roles in film and television,” Arquette said. “Writing a memoir will be a new and intimate artistic journey for me, and I hope to bring to it the same honesty I have always sought to bring to my work as an actor.”
