The actor will open up about his career and his life "away from the camera" in the upcoming book.

Tom Selleck is working on a memoir, and it won't just be about acting.

The Magnum P.I. star has a deal with Dey Street Books, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers. The book, announced Monday, is currently untitled and does not yet have a release date.

Selleck, 74, said in a statement that he would share stories about his career, but also about life "away from the camera." Besides Magnum P.I., Selleck is known for such films as Three Men and a Baby and for his Jesse Stone TV movies. According to Dey Street, his book will illuminate a half century of Hollywood "and of America." The actor revealed last summer that he had started the memoir, saying people had been asking him for years to write one.
