Jim Carrey is lifting his mask to let his fans in on the intimate details of his life.

The Kidding star is due to release a novel that will be a semi-autobiographical work.

The book, entitled Memoirs and Misinformation, has been co-written by Dana Vachon and described as a “fearless and semi-autobiographical deconstruction of persona” that discusses “acting, Hollywood, agents, celebrity, privilege, friendship, loneliness, romance, addiction to relevance, fear of personal erasure, growing up in Canada, and a cataclysmic ending of the world.”

Knopf will publish the memoir next year, with the editor-in-chief, Sonny Mehta, saying, “Jim Carrey has written a novel that is more revealing about his life than any memoir could possibly be. It is a perceptive and highly entertaining book about the arc of fame, as well as a look inside the mind of an artist, the life that shaped him, and the world he inhabits.”

Following the May 5th release, Carrey is scheduled to embark on a book tour.
