“I’ve been writing since I was a child, and have always had so many stories to tell that are too long, shady, and impolite to share in interviews,” Sidibe said in a release.”

CBS reports that Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Senior Executive Editor, Deanne Urmy, added, “Moving from Bed-Stuy, to Senegal to Cannes, as Gabby has done in a still-short lifetime, has helped produce a fierce, wise way of being in the world, impossible not to admire. ‘Funny’ doesn’t begin to capture just how irreverent and complex Gabby’s stories are,” said Urmy in a statement.

Sidibe, 32, has also appeared on the last two seasons of “American Horror Story,” and the TV series “The Big C.”
