Emily Ratajkowski is releasing a book of essays, titled ‘My Body’

Emily Ratajkowki new book 'My Body'

Is there anything Emily Ratajkowski can't do? For her latest project, the model, entrepreneur, activist and now author announced on Instagram that she is releasing her first book with prestigious publishing house Metropolitan Books – a collection of personal essays titled My Body. The book is set to be released in 2022, and will explore themes of feminism, sexuality, the treatment of women as a commodity and the rationalisation of that treatment.

"Thrilled and humbled to announce my book of essays entitled “My Body” will be published by Metropolitan Books," wrote Ratajkowski.

"It’s surreal to be working with an imprint that has published so many writers I admire (Noam Chomsky! Edward Snowden!) Now it’s time to get to work!"

Last month, the model penned a powerful essay for New York magazine, The Cut, detailing many of the harrowing experiences she had at the hands of male photographers when she was beginning in the industry. Titled Buying Myself Back: When does a model own her own image? Ratajkowski spoke candidly about instances of alleged sexual assault during a photoshoot with photographer Jonathan Leder when she was only 20-years-old.

The images taken during the night were then released by Leder several years later in 2016, in a book he named Emily Ratajkowski – all without the models consent. Following this initial release, Leder proceeded to produce two additional books that featured outtakes from the shoot, one of which was titled Two Nights With Emily.

Speaking about Ratajkowski's first book, My Body, Metropolitan editor Sara Bershtel shared, “Emily Ratajkowski reveals herself to be devastatingly honest, nuanced, and strong — I’m not surprised that she thinks of herself first as a writer. I also admire how outspoken she is, how political, and how unafraid – what force she’ll be!”
