*The Berry Gordy memoir which inspired the Broadway hit “Motown: The Musical” is being reissued as an e-book, reports Billboard.
Gordy’s “To Be Loved,” first published in 1994, had been out of print. The e-edition is scheduled for release Thursday by Rosetta Books, a digital publisher. The book covers Gordy’s rise from high school dropout to head of a record label that featured Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Diana Ross and turned out scores of hits in the 1960s and `70s.
The book was adapted for “Motown: The Musical,” which Gordy co-produced. The show has been nominated for four Tonys, with the awards ceremony scheduled for Sunday.
In a statement issued by Rosetta, Gordy said he had written the book to “capture the remarkable times” and “great artists” of the Motown era.
