E.L. James to Write New “Fifty Shades” Novel from Christian’s Perspective

E.L. James has once again tied herself to her desk chair to write a new Fifty Shades of Grey novel, this time from Christian Grey’s perspective. Variety reports that according to E.L. James, we the public have “asked…and asked…and asked for this.” Who asked for this? Please raise your hand.

Well, perhaps some of you asked for it. The original book trilogy sold 125 million copies worldwide, and the film adaptation starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson has made $569.7 million worldwide.

How will the film sequels possibly incorporate the fascinating motivations and desires of literature’s most complex stud muffin? Cartoon speech bubbles blossoming from Christian’s finely coiffed head, perhaps? We’ll have to wait patiently.

The new book, titled “Grey,” will be published June 18th (which, adorably, is Christian’s birthday.)
