Sly Stone to Publish a New Memoir for Questlove’s AUWA Imprint

Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin), is a new memoir by Sly and the Family Stone frontman Sly Stone. It was created in collaboration with Sly Stone’s manager Arlene Hirschkowitz, and written with Ben Greenman. The memoir will also feature a foreword by Questlove. The publishing date is set for autumn 2023.

Sly Stone says, “[f]or as long as I can remember folks have been asking me to tell my story, I wasn’t ready. I had to be in a new frame of mind to become Sylvester Stewart again to tell the true story of Sly Stone. It’s been a wild ride and hopefully, my fans enjoy it too.”

White Rabbit publisher Lee Brackstone adds, “I fell in love with Sly Stone as a teenager and have been obsessed with his music and the mysterious story of his life ever since. To be publishing his memoir at White Rabbit Books is the ultimate honor. It simply doesn’t get any bigger or more exciting than this: a bona fide genius, a funk visionary who re-set the dial in the late ’60s and in so doing anticipated the hip-hop revolution to come. This book delivers and then goes again.”
