On the Books Mar. 4: Charlie Sheen's imaginary book has a title, Billy Joel's memoir has a date, and more

Billy-JoelImage Credit: Steven Henry/Getty ImagesHarperCollins announced details about Billy Joel’s memoir and set the publication date for June 14. The book promises to be a blend of fan-pleasing stories about the creation of some of his greatest hits, including “Just the Way You Are” and “New York State of Mind,” and tell-all confessionals of his rocky marriage and divorce with Christie Brinkley and problems with drugs and depression.

Charlie Sheen tweeted the title of his supposed book; apparently the space Warlocks lasered the idea straight into his brain, via “vast and extensive Lunar channels.” The title is actually quite brilliant: “Apocalypse Me” succinctly and poetically describes the nuclear holocaust that’s been his professional, private, and personal life as of late. It also invites so many jokes. “I love the smell of _____ in the morning.” Please, fill in the blank yourselves.

The jocks go literary with the fiction issue of ESPN magazine.

Bringing Adam Home recounts the investigation of Adam Walsh’s abduction, which inspired his father John to help other victims and families with America’s Most Wanted.

    I feel like I should point out that Apocalypse Now is also a movie that almost killed his father Martin and where he (Martin) was pretty famously spiraling out of control with alcohol. Pointed?

    Joel should write a new song after 25 dry years instead of a ghost-written biography.
