New York - Amy Winehouse's father has a book deal.
HarperCollins announced on Monday that Mitch Winehouse has agreed to terms with the publisher in the US and Britain for the release of Amy, My Daughter. HarperCollins says the book will come out in summer 2012.
The publisher says Mitch Winehouse will write about everything from his daughter's childhood to her singing career to her well-publicised struggles with substance abuse. Amy Winehouse died in July at age 27.
Financial terms were not disclosed. Proceeds from the book will be donated to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which was founded by her father and helps troubled children and young adults.
