An­other shade of ‘Grey’

Los Angeles Times - - CALENDAR - — Michael Schaub

E.L. James has writ­ten a new novel telling the story of “Fifty Shades of Grey” from the char­ac­ter Chris­tian Grey’s point of view, the au­thor an­nounced Mon­day.

“Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Chris­tian” will be re­leased by Vin­tage Books, a Pen­guin Ran­dom House imprint, on June 18. That’s also the birth­day of the char­ac­ter, a young Seat­tle busi­ness­man with a taste for bondage and sado­masochis­tic sex. The orig­i­nal erotic tril­ogy was told from the per­spec­tive of Anas­ta­sia Steele, a col­lege stu­dent who en­ters into a re­la­tion­ship with Grey.

The orig­i­nal “Fifty Shades” tril­ogy, which also in­cludes the nov­els “Fifty Shades Darker” and “Fifty Shades Freed,” has sold more than 125 mil­lion copies and been trans­lated into more than 50 lan­guages. The film adap­ta­tion of “Fifty Shades of Grey” re­leased in Fe­bru­ary has grossed al­most $570 mil­lion world­wide.
