Former U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to publish a memoir.

On June 20, HarperCollins Publishers announced that Johnson’s memoir, Unleashed, will be released this fall. The book will detail Johnson’s tenure as Prime Minister, a role which he served from July 2019 to Sept. 2022, as well as the “big decisions” made during his time in power.

Unleashed will cover the challenges that rose throughout Johnson’s tenure, including how he “nearly died” from COVID-19, as well as how his administration dealt with riots and crime. The book will also detail the 2019 shift in U.K. politics that occurred with Johnson’s election.

“Unlike most top politicians, Boris Johnson is also a writer,” said Arabella Pike, director of William Collins Publishing. “His book, Unleashed is compulsively readable, stuffed to the brim with serious reflections on his time in office but written with his charismatic trademark wit, his vivid use of language and stories galore. We are delighted to be publishing this autumn.”
