Actor Elliot Page will tell the story of his life and career in a new memoir.

Flatiron Books will publish the Umbrella Academy star’s Pageboy next year, the Macmillan imprint announced in a news release.

Pageboy will give readers a look into Elliot Page’s journey from Halifax, Nova Scotia, to Hollywood,” Flatiron said. “The memoir will delve into Page’s relationship with his body, his experiences as one of the most famous trans people in the world, and will cover mental health, assault, love, relationships, sex, and the cesspool that Hollywood can be.”

Page began his acting career in the late 1990s, starring in the Canadian film Pit Pony and its television spinoff. He rose to fame after his roles in a series of films including Hard Candy, X-Men: The Last Stand, and Juno, the latter of which earned him an Academy Award nomination. A longtime advocate for LGBTQ+ causes, he came out as transgender in 2020.

Bryn Clark, Flatiron senior editor, said Page’s book “knocked the wind out of me.”

“Elliot’s story pieces together a complicated coming of age where he struggles to maintain his strong sense of self in the face of a society that slowly fractures and fragments anyone who doesn't fit neatly into a binary-driven world,” Clark said. “Working on a book like this, one that speaks truth with raw beauty, is truly a career high and a moment for which I’ve been waiting as long as I can remember.”
