Kwame Kilpatrick is working with a writer on a book that that a spokesman says will allow the imprisoned ex-Detroit Mayor to tell his side of the story of his life.
WDIV-TV reports Tuesday that the book currently is titled "Surrendered: The Rise, Fall and Revelation of Kwame Kilpatrick," and plans call for its publication when Kilpatrick is released from prison.
Kilpatrick spokesman Mike Paul says "it's important for him to speak from his viewpoint." Paul says a movie also could be made.
Kilpatrick is in prison for violating the terms of his probation on obstruction of justice and assault convictions. The federal government brought fraud and tax charges against Kilpatrick in June. Kilpatrick, his father Bernard Kilpatrick and three others were indicted last week on federal corruption charges.
