Grace Coddington's Memoirs Now Authorless

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Today in books we'd love to read and are hoping will be written asap: Jay Fielden, the editor of Town & Country, was previously signed on to write the memoirs/biography of Vogue's flame-haired creative director Grace Coddington, but because of his new job, has had to bow out of the project. “We both recently began to realize that having a job like Jay’s wasn’t going to allow us the time it takes to write a story as detailed as mine,” Coddington told WWD. “So we shed a few tears and agreed to reconvene for volume two.” Fielden's successor has not yet been named.
