Alec Baldwin has struck a deal to publish a memoir, which will come out in the autumn of 2016.
Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, announced plans for the outspoken “30 Rock” actor to pen “Nevertheless,” which will delve into both his personal and professional ups and downs. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“Alec Baldwin is a larger-than-life talent with an astonishing range. And his life up to now has been far from dull,” HarperCollins publisher Jonathan Burnham said in a statement. “In this memoir he writes about his family, lovers, friends and enemies, confronts his former demons, relives the highs and lows of his career, and opens up in an unflinchingly honest way about his life and times. This memoir will be funny, occasionally combative, often moving and an unbelievably good read.”
The 56-year-old actor will wield the power of the pen after chafing publicly last year enough at his coverage in the media to vow to move his home out of New York. Baldwin also stepped out of his successful acting career last year for a short-lived stint as an MSNBC talk show host.
“Nevertheless” will be Baldwin’s second book, having already written “A Promise to Ourselves,” a dissection of how divorce is handled in the U.S. legal system, in 2008.
