(CNN) – New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who may be eyeing a run for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, has landed a deal to chronicle a "full and frank look at his public and private life" in a book set for release next year.
The yet-untitled memoir, announced by publisher Harper Collins on Tuesday, will start with the Democrat's upbringing in Queens and detail the influence of his father Mario Cuomo, who also served as New York governor. He'll also discuss his government service as the U.S. housing secretary, and as the Empire State's attorney general and governor, according to a release.
He'll delve into some of his high-profile decisions in Albany, like signing a same-sex marriage law and enacting strict new gun control measures.
His is one of several books coming in the next year from potential 2016 presidential candidates. Earlier this month, Simon and Schuster announced an upcoming volume from Hillary Clinton detailing her years as secretary of state. The publishing house said Clinton's book would be the "ultimate book for people who are interested in world affairs and America's place in the world today."
Both Clinton and Cuomo were represented by Washington lawyer Robert Barnett in their book deal negotiations. Financial terms were not disclosed for either politician.
Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin is also working on a book with former George W. Bush speechwriter Marc Thiessen. The project will be published by Sentinel, a conservative imprint of Penguin Books.
The New York Times first reported Cuomo's new book deal on Monday.
