People simply can't get enough of the Presley family — In the last two years alone, there've been two major, buzzy biopics about the family, and now the late Lisa Marie Presley (she died nearly a year ago to the day) will have her memoir published this fall. 

The still-untitled memoir will be co-written by Presley's daughter Riley Keough and will arrive October 15 via Random House. The publisher's description of the memoir reads:

Born to an American myth and raised in the wilds of Graceland, Lisa Marie Presley was never truly understood . . . until now. Before her death in 2023, she'd been working on a raw, riveting, one-of-a-kind memoir for years, recording countless hours of breathtakingly vulnerable tape, which has finally been put on the page by her daughter, Riley Keough.

Keough will read the memoir's audiobook, which will also feature Presley's own voice, pulled from the tapes.

"Few people had the opportunity to know who my mom really was, other than being Elvis's daughter," Keough said in a statement. "I was lucky to have had that opportunity and working on preparing her autobiography for publication has been a privilege, albeit a bittersweet one. I'm so excited to share my mom now, at her most vulnerable and most honest, and in doing so, I do hope that readers come to love my mom as much as I did."

Following Presley's death and a legal battle with her grandmother Priscilla, Keough became the sole trustee of her mother's (and a portion of Elvis's) estate, which includes ownership of Graceland.
