roger New York, May 17 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Movie critic Roger Ebert is going to release his new memoir in 2011. And in this memoir, he is hoping to include all facets of his life and real life incidents as well. Even though it is his memoir, and the release date has been decided, but the title of the book is yet to be decided. The memoir would showcase the life and times of Roger Ebert’s professional career.

And the personal battle of Roger against thyroid cancer would also find a mention in the book, as it has managed to dictate harsh terms on his life. Roger has suffered a lot because of thyroid cancer, and he is all set to write about his struggle with the disease, and how he managed to bring it to its knees as well.

He would also write about how cancer took away his ability to speak and how he managed to cope with that too. Four years ago the noted film critic Roger Ebert lost the ability to speak due to thyroid cancer and numerous surgeries. But recently new software, which uses audio recordings of his previously taped voice, was used to create a synthetic voice, which is very similar to Roger’s natural voice. Using this technology, he has got back the ability to speak and converse.
