E.L. James, the author of the ridiculously popular Fifty Shades of Grey series, is giving Christian Grey a chance to share his side of the story. James took to Instagram this morning to announce that her new book, entitled Grey, is a retelling of the first book in the trilogy, but through her enigmatic title character's eyes:
In a statement accompanying the announcement, James added that readers, still hungry after reading protagonist Anastasia Steele's take on things, have been clamoring to get a deeper look into Christian's life and troubled past. "Also, as anyone who has ever been in a relationship knows, there are two sides to every story," she says. "It's been a great pleasure to return to my happy place — writing, being with Christian and Ana in their universe, and working with the fantastic team at Vintage." Grey will land on bookshelves on June 18th.
