The award-winning actor has a deal with Harper for “Nevertheless,” scheduled for the fall of 2016. Harper stated the book will cover everything from Baldwin’s childhood in Long Island to his acclaimed work on “30 Rock” to the various run-ins and fallings-out he has experienced along the way. It will be a story of “hits and flops, marriage, divorce,” and some “opinions on the media and politics.” Harper also announced that Baldwin, 56, will write the memoir himself.
“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 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.”
Financial terms for his new book were not disclosed.
