Seth Rogen’s first book, titled ‘Yearbook’, to hit bookshelves in May

Billed as a collection of “true stories and essays”, the book is published by Penguin Random House.

Actor-writer Seth Rogen is set to make his book debut with Yearbook, which will be released on May 11.

Billed as a collection of “true stories and essays”, the book is published by Penguin Random House.

Rogen, 38, shared the news on Twitter on Wednesday night.

“I wrote a book called Yearbook. It’s true stories and essays and stuff that I hope you think are funny,” the multi-hyphenate personality wrote as he shared the link to the book, adding “It comes out in May, but if you like you can order it now. Yay!”

In a statement from the publisher purported to be from Rogen’s mother, Sandy, she described the book as “not really a memoir” but more like “a bunch of funny stories”, reported USA Today.

“He talks about doing stand-up when he was a kid (I drove him to all his shows!), his grandparents, high school, moving to LA, meeting some famous people, things like that. If I’m being honest, I really wish there wasn’t so much drug talk,” Sandy said.

“Why does he need all that? It’s like ‘We get it!’ And some of the stories? I mean, they’re entertaining, but I was just shocked they happened and he never told me!” she added.

Rogen, a Canadian-American actor, started doing stand-up in hometown Vancouver, and moved to Los Angeles for a role in Judd Apatow’s series Freaks and Geeks when he was just 16.

He later earned a part on the sitcom Undeclared, which also hired him as a writer. After landing his job as a staff writer on the final season of Da Ali G Show, starring actor-comic Sacha Baron Cohen, Apatow guided Rogen towards a film career.

Rogen made his Hollywood feature debut in Donnie Darko, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, with a minor role in 2001.

He has since starred in films like The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up, Steve Jobs, while co-writing movies Superbad, Pineapple Express with writing partner Evan Goldberg, and also directed This Is the End and The Interview; all of which Rogen featured in.
