For some time in the first half of the Eighties, Kate Bush considered writing an autobiography. She was asked to write a book probably as early as 1980. Publishers Sidgwick & Jackson actually produced a dustjacket for the book (pictured here). According to library data, the book was to run 144 pages plus 8 pages of photographs.

In 1984, the project was shelved indefinitely. No autobiography has ever been published. It isn’t even known if Kate ever wrote one or more chapters for the book.
