We Begged & Now It’s Happening: EL James Will Publish ‘Fifty Shades’ From Christian Grey’s POV

fifty shades darker teaser

We asked, we begged, and we pleaded to know more about the enigmatic Christian Grey, and we’re finally going to get answers! Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy author EL James has announced that she is publishing a new book that tells the story from Christian’s perspective…and we don’t even have an agonizingly long wait! The book will be called Grey, and will be published on June 18 – the character’s birthday.

“Christian is a complex character,” said James in a statement provided by her publisher, “and readers have always been fascinated by his desires and motivations, and his troubled past. Also, as anyone who has ever been in a relationship knows, there are two sides to every story. It’s been a great pleasure to return to my happy place – writing, being with Christian and Ana in their universe, and working with the fantastic publishing teams in the US and the UK.”

Does this mean we will finally know how Christian became such a successful businessman at such a young age? And how the Red Room came to be? Maybe how he first discovered he was into BDSM? Maybe a wait of a few weeks is still too long.

Preorder that book, stat!
