Arnold Schwarzenegger to write memoir
The autobiography, with a working title of "Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story," will chronicle Schwarzenegger’s rise from bodybuilder to movie star and politician.
The publisher’s statement did not mention whether the book will cover a personal scandal that has embroiled the former governor: It was revealed several months ago that he fathered a child with his family’s longtime housekeeper. He and his wife, Maria Shriver, subsequently divorced.
"Truly, Arnold is one of the most fascinating figures of our time, and one of the greatest success stories in the world,” said publisher Jonathan Karp in a statement from Simon & Schuster. "Nobody has a life story even close to his.”
The former governor has now returned to Hollywood, signing on to film "Expendables 2" and "Last Stand."
