Comedian Tracy Morgan of Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock fame has sold his autobiography to Spiegel & Grau, a young division of the Doubleday group at Random House that is about to launch its first full list.
Cindy Spiegel, who runs S&G with Julie Grau, told Media Mob today that Morgan will work with author Anthony Bozza, who recently helped Slash of Guns ‘n’ Roses write his memoirs for HarperCollins. Spiegel said the book was acquired shortly before the holiday, but has yet to be officially announced.
According to the S&G book list, an inventory of all of the the house’s acquisitions, Morgan’s book will cover his entire life story, "from the Coney Island projects where he grew up to his days on the streets of Brooklyn selling crack to the escape that stand-up comedy promised and his eventual discovery by Martin Lawrence and Lorne Michaels and the alcohol addiction that threatened his life and career."
