Assange, who has reached worldwide celebrity status for controversy over Wikileaks and recent sex crime charges, describes himself in the following way, “Physically and intellectually pugnacious; pig headed, absolutist, megalomanical, an extreme statisitcal outlier, a difficult character and a cad — and those are just my good points.”
Pretty soon, we’ll know a whole lot more about the infamous man who sees himself as a “martyr without dying,” and has been heralded by open Internet advocacy groups and hackers worldwide. Reuters reports that Assange is expected to have a manuscript ready in March. News of the memoirs leaked via a tweet from Spanish publisher Random House Mondadori, with head of the literary division Claudio Lopez telling the world that “Manuscrito listo en marzo” — the manuscript will be ready in March.
Last week, we reported that 39-year-old Julian Assange was let out on bail, to reside in the English countryside under “Hi-Tech house arrest” on the following conditions: surrendering his passport, a curfew from 10am-2pm and 10pm-2am, an electronic tag and the duty to report to the police everyday at 6pm.
We’re looking forward to learning more about Assange. Will you read his memoir?
