Berry Gordy memoir reissued as e-book

NEW YORK (AP) — The Berry Gordy memoir which inspired the Broadway hit “Motown: The Musical” is being reissued as an e-book.

Gordy’s “To Be Loved,” first published in 1994, had been out of print. The e-edition is scheduled for release Thursday by RosettaBooks, 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 4 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.
