...Rivers recently posted a video in which he revealed some pages of his colossal new book "The Pinkerton Diaries" which will be out later in '11. He mentions March as the release date, though I havent heard an official confirmation of that yet. "The Pinkerton Diaries" consists of Rivers's compiled journal entries, school papers and letters from 1994–1997, and will come packaged with his latest installment of home recordings, "Alone III", which reveals even more of the Songs From The Black H*** demos as well as other cool unheard tracks, many (most?) of which are complimentary to the time period of the book.
