Mariel Hemingway working on memoir and young adult novel

NEW YORK (AP) — Mariel Hemingway has a lot to say about the pain of being a Hemingway.

Regan Arts announced Monday that the actress has a memoir and young adult novel coming in April. The memoir is called "Out Came the Sun" and has the sobering subtitle "Overcoming the Legacy of Mental Illness, Addiction, and Suicide In My Family."

As noted by the publisher, seven members of the Hemingway family have committed suicide over the past four generations, notably author Ernest Hemingway, Mariel's grandfather.

Mariel Hemingway, known to many as Woody Allen's young love interest in "Manhattan," will offer "never-before-told stories" about her life and career, including experiences with "world-class" filmmakers and actors.

The novel is called "Invisible Girl" and is based on her childhood.
