Patricia Arquette is writing a memoir.
The 46-year-old actress will publish the book through Random House with Susan Kamil as editor, the company announced in a statement Wednesday.
The as-of-yet-untitled work will explore Arquette's unconventional childhood, life as a single mother and career as an actress. The star hails from a long line of performers, and welcomed her first child, son Enzo, with then-boyfriend Paul Rossi at age 20.
"Over the years, the public has come to know aspects of me through my roles in film and television," Arquette said. "Writing a memoir will be a new and intimate artistic journey for me, and I hope to bring to it the same honesty I have always sought to bring to my work as an actor."
"Patricia Arquette is a remarkable woman," Kamil added. "And the instant empathy audiences feel when they see her work on screen is completely evident on the page. The material I read is revelatory and deeply moving. Not surprising from an actress of such nuance and intelligence."
Arquette recently earned an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Richard Linklater film Boyhood. The actress currently stars as Avery Ryan on CBS police drama CSI: Cyber with James Van Der Beek, and is scheduled for The Wannabe with Michael Imperioli.
