NEW YORK (AP) — Shania Twain is ready to talk about her recent divorce — and she'll do it in her autobiography.

Of course, Twain will discuss much more than her recent split with music producer Robert "Mutt" Lange. The country superstar announced Wednesday that her book will talk about her difficult childhood, including the death of her mother. She'll also chart her rise to become one of the top-sellers in music.

Twain says recent struggles created a "sudden urgency to document my life before I ran out of time."

The Grammy winner shot to fame in the 1990s with hits like "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!" She had spent the past few years out of the spotlight.

She's due to have her own show on Oprah Winfrey's new OWN network.

Twain's book will be published by Atria Books.
