Chrisann Brennan was Apple co-founder Steve Jobs’ first serious girlfriend, and the mother to his first child Lisa Brennan Jobs, although he initially denied that he was the childs father.
Brennan has been fairly tight lipped on her relationship with Jobs, but it now turns out that she is working on a memoir detailing her relationship with him. The New York Times which reported the story said, St. Martin’s Press, part of Macmillan, said on Thursday it had acquired the rights to an untitled memoir by Ms. Brennan, who is now a painter based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The report also quoted a statement from the publisher in which it said,
St. Martin’s said Ms. Brennan’s memoir would cover a range of subjects, including her relationship with Jobs, the founding of Apple and “Jobs’s enormous appeal, energy and drive as well as his developing ambition and ruthlessness in business and personal dealings.”
Brennan wrote on Jobs on one other occasion soon after his death, for the Rolling Stones magazine, in which she said, “At 17, Steve had more than a touch of the cool sophistication of a Beat poet”.
Brennan also lived in a cabin with Jobs and attended meditation and poetry classes with him.
There is still no word on when the memoir is expected to be published, but given the unrelenting interest in the tech guru even one year after his death, it is sure to be a knock-out best seller.
