Pistorius plans money-spinning book as girlfriend’s family head home | World news | The Observer

Oscar Pistorius plans to write a book giving his account of what happened when he shot dead his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, and his ordeal in standing trial for her murder, his manager said on Saturday.The memoir could prove hugely lucrative for the Paralympian but also prompt accusations that he is cashing in on the killing of the 29-year-old model and law graduate.Pistorius was acquitted of murder at the high court in Pretoria, South Africa, last week but convicted of culpable homicide after shooting Steenkamp through a locked toilet door at his home. He was released on bail and will be sentenced at a hearing that starts on 13 October.As Steenkamp’s parents expressed dismay at the verdict and headed home to Port Elizabeth, Pistorius’s manager and agent, Peet van Zyl, revealed that the double amputee athlete intends to put his side of the story on paper.
