Bill Cosby Lands Book Deal with Hachette

Comedian and author Bill Cosby will write another book. I Didn’t Ask To Be Born, But I’m Glad I Was will be published in November by Hachette Book Group’s Center Street imprint.

WME agents Norman Brokaw and Mel Berger negotiated the deal. Rolf Zettersten acquired the book and senior editor Kate Hartson will edit.  The book will cover his first date, misbehaving grandchildren and the Bible. Cosby has written a number of books, including Fatherhood and Cosbyology. In the video embedded above, he introduces his own smartphone app.

Here’s more from the release: “Cosby revists the Bible for the first time since his famous Noah routine. This time he discusses how God worked with Adam to name 50,000 species… They must have had a wonderful time. ‘If you look at some of the animal names I believe there’s proof that God woke Adam up and Adam was startled.’”
