How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris has landed a book deal with Random House’s Crown Archetype imprint for his first book. Publication is set for 2014.
Here’s more from the publisher: “As yet untitled, Harris’s book will be a work of imaginative nonfiction that delivers an interactive, nonlinear reading experience that breaks the boundaries of conventional memoir. An accomplished amateur magician, Harris will draw upon his love of adventure and surprise in creating the book, as well as upon the many roles he has played in his life and career—from being a child star to coming out, and from acting on Broadway to becoming a proud father.”
Laura Nolan from Paradigm negotiated the deal with publisher Tina Constable. Senior editor Suzanne O’Neill will edit. Harris’ career has spanned genres, ranging from Doogie Howser, M.D. to playing himself in the Harold & Kumar to leading Joss Whedon’s cult musical, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.
