Cooper Janis to document musician husband’s life

Maria Cooper Janis will tell the story of how her spouse became a child star, despite losing feeling in a finger after a car crash when he was 11.

The book will also document Janis’ battle with arthritis and experiences with the paranormal, according to the New York Post.

The as-yet-unnamed book will be released alongside a U.S. TV documentary about Janis’ life.

Cooper Janis is Gary Cooper’s only child from his marriage to actress Veronica Balfe.
