NEW YORK (AP) — Eddie Izzard is serious about his latest project: a memoir.

The 52-year-old British actor and comedian has a deal with Blue Rider Press, the publisher announced Thursday. The book is currently untitled. It is scheduled to come out next winter, according to Blue Rider, an imprint of Penguin Random House.

Izzard plans to cover his life from childhood to his comedy tours and acting roles, including the TV series "The Riches" and the movies "Ocean's Twelve" and "Ocean's Thirteen."
