The 71-year-old will share a collection of autobiographical essays in Are You Anybody, which will be published by officials at Crown Archetype, an imprint of Penguin Random House.

The book will include "introspective, humorous stories" about his childhood, growing up in San Francisco, California in a conservative Jewish family, and explain how he coped living with his father's motto, "Don't celebrate, they'll take it away from you."

The articles will also document his thought processes and the life lessons he drew from as he developed alter egos like Hank from the late Garry Shandling's The Larry Sanders Show, George Bluth, Sr. from cult comedy Arrested Development, and transgender Maura Pfefferman from the critically-acclaimed Transparent.

He has also promised to share the emotional rollercoasters he used to experience during auditions, his fear of success and his struggles to connect with audiences, reports The Associated Press.

A statement released by Tambor reads: "Books and theater saved me. I am thrilled to be publishing my first book with Crown.

"I look forward to sharing the stories and lessons from my life that have shaped the characters I've played, and how those characters have helped shape me.

"Some stories will be awkward, others inspiring, some dark, most funny, and all will, I think, be hopeful and instructive."
