The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Odenkirk plans to write a book of personal essays. At this point in time, the publisher has not revealed the release date for this untitled project.

Her’s more from The New York Times: “The book will trace Mr. Odenkirk’s trajectory from Second City in Chicago to Saturday Night Live, The Ben Stiller Show, and Mr. Show With Bob and David, as well as his role as Jimmy McGill (a.k.a. Saul Goodman) on the AMC crime drama Breaking Bad and the prequel series Better Call Saul. Mr. Odenkirk said in a statement that his book will be ‘a comic ‘bildungsroman,’ if you will — defined by Webster’s Dictionary as ‘a novel about the moral and psychological growth of the main character’ — except this will be more memoir and the main character, Bob Odenkirk (actor, writer, comedian, gadabout), doesn’t grow morally or psychologically.'” (via A.V.
