FRIENDS star Matthew Perry is set to release an autobiography in late 2022. His memoir will narrate his past struggles with drug abuse and more. The book has been described as candid, self-aware’ and ‘unflinchingly honest’ but also funny. He said he feels it’s time for him to tell his own story “directly from the horse’s mouth”.
Matthew played the role of the adorable Chandler Bing on the supremely popular sitcom, FRIENDS - which aired in the late 1990s.

Speaking to People magazine, Matthew Perry said, “There has been so much written about me by others in the past. I thought it was time people heard it directly from the horse’s mouth. In this case, the horse’s mouth being me.”
As per a report in deadline.com, Perry has signed a seven-figure deal with Flatiron Books, a division of Macmillan, for the upcoming memoir.
Megan Lynch, the publisher of Flatiron Books, will be editing the autobiography. She said, “We need humour, we need catharsis, and we need to agree on something-and Matthew’s extraordinary story, told in his inimitable voice, is that thing. Matthew’s book has unrivalled potential to bring people together, which feels especially galvanising right now, a time of isolation and division.”
It is, however, yet unknown how much of Perry’s life will be narrated in the memoir. The yet-untitled book is slated to hit bookshelves in the fall of 2022.
Earlier this year, Matthew Perry was seen at the FRIENDS reunion special episode - with his co-stars - Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer.
The much-awaited special featured the cast talking about several behind-the-scenes secrets from their time on the show.
