Bob Odenkirk as Jimmy McGill in 'Better Call Saul' Season Tw

'Better Call Saul' Star Bob Odenkirk Publishing a Memoir

HaydnSpurrell HaydnSpurrell Better Call Saul leading man Bob Odenkirk is set to publish his first book of personal essays through Random House, which acquired the North American rights to the memoir.

The book is a comic exploration of the actor's life and career, from his early days in sketch and improv through to writing an acting on Saturday Night live right up to Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul.

The 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.”

“I’ve been a fan of Bob’s since he ‘shook the crime stick’ on ‘Mr. Show,’ and it’s been remarkably satisfying to watch him break through as Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman. This book will give ‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘Better Call Saul’ fans who might not know Bob’s past life a look at the remarkable writer and comedic mind hiding just beneath that character," said Random House executive editor Ben Greenberg.
