They say everyone has a book in them, and so it comes as no surprise that the Olsen twins have finally decided to put quill to paper and distill the full breadth of their life experience. Influence, which will be edited by ‘mocialite Derek Blasberg and published by Penguin’s young-adult-oriented Razorbill imprint in the fall, will take a look at the artists and fashion designers who, according to People, have “inspired the savvy fashionistas over the past decade” — you know, since they were 11 — as well as a compendium of “exclusive” photographs of Ashley and Mary-Kate, along with other materials and interviews from the twins’ “personal collections.” We’re kind of expecting it will be something like Susan Sontag’s Against Interpretation meets Paris Hilton’s Confessions of an Heiress. We can’t wait for book club!
