EL James is to release a new version of Fifty Shades of Grey, written from Christian Grey’s point of view.
Titled Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as told by Christian, the new book will hit shelves on June 18th, a date fans of the series will know to be Grey’s birthday.
"This book is dedicated to those readers who asked…and asked…and asked…and asked for this," said James.
"Christian is a complex character, and readers have always been fascinated by his desires and motivations, and his troubled past. Also, as anyone who has ever been in a relationship knows, there are two sides to every story. 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."
Vintage Books publisher and James’s editor, Anne Messitte, added: "Fifty Shades of Grey is a love story that has enthralled readers in a way that few books have.
“When Erika mentioned to me that she wanted to explore Christian’s viewpoint and re-open the story, I was incredibly excited for her and for her readers. This book has all the compelling attributes of its predecessors, and I can’t wait for Fifty Shades fans to experience the work again from a perspective they have long desired.”
