Pop culture icon Leif Garrett has announced that he has signed on with well-known New York literary agent John Silbersack of The Bent Agency to handle the sale of his upcoming memoir. “It’s a privilege to be working with an agent as experienced and well-respected as John,” Garrett said. “I’m confident that his knowledge and insights will not only result in finding the right publisher, but also help me create the book that I really want to write.”
John Silbersack said, “The complex history of American Pop music in the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s would not be complete without the voice of Leif Garrett, an icon of the industry whose life story is at once astonishing, tragic, and inspirational. It’s a privilege to help Leif craft his book and count him as a friend.”
In the late 1970s, Leif Garrett came to define the ultimate American teen idol. His posters hung in the bedrooms of millions of teenaged girls all over the world and his story is one that fans have waited for for decades.
