Alec Baldwin, who regularly portrays President Trump on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” will co-write a political parody book titled, “You Can’t Spell America Without Me: The Really Tremendous Inside Story of My Fantastic First Year as President Donald J. Trump.”

The book will be co-written by Kurt Anderson and published by Penguin Press, which announced the project on Twitter, saying, “We’re so excited to publish it.”

The book is scheduled for publication in November and Baldwin will read the audiobook version while impersonating the president, according to The New York Times.

Andersen was a founding editor of Spy magazine, which has been attacking Trump since the 1980s and famously referred to him as a “short-fingered vulgarian.”

“I think it’s fair to say that Kurt will do most of the writing,” Baldwin told the Times. “We have that arrangement whereby he doesn’t put on the wig, I don’t open up a Word document.”

Andersen told the Times, “It’ll be sharp. I’m going to start talking like Trump: It’ll be great! It’ll be fantastic! But it will be sharp. It won’t just be fun-loving.”
