In the first Anchorman film, Seventies news icon Ron Burgundy boasted, "I own many leather-bound books." Now he appears to have written one: Let Me Off at the Top!, a new autobiography attributed to the fictional character, will be published by Random House's Crown Archetype imprint on November 19th.

The memoir does not feature a writing credit from either Adam McKay or Will Ferrell, who co-wrote both the original 2004 comedy and its upcoming sequel, Anchorman: The Legend Continues. According to a press release, the book will chronicle Burgundy's love life and career with the Channel 4 News Team, "offer(ing) a rare glimpse behind the camera into the real life of a man many consider to be the greatest living news anchor."

"I don't know if it's the greatest autobiography ever written," Burgundy said in an statement, also noting that he "cried like a goddamn baby" the first time he read the book. 

This is an especially classy year for Burgundy fans: The long-awaited Anchorman: The Legend Continues will hit theaters on December 20th, and is said to include cameos by Drake and Kanye West, along with the cast from the original movie and Kristen Wiig, who will play Brick Tamland's love interest.
