Biographer Marc Shapiro said that the work will tell the story of the star's life "without overt sensationalism".
"Adele has still remained largely that salt-of-the-earth girl from Tottenham," he added.
Adele is notoriously protective of her private life, and despite both her albums (19
) being inspired by past relationships, she is reluctant to reveal the identity of their subjects.Reports suggest
that Shapiro, who has also written a book on Justin Bieber, requested interviews with the 24-year-old, which she declined.
