Tom Sizemore is joining the ranks of Mackenzie Phillips, Steven Tyler and Keith Richards!

The actor, who has struggled with alcoholism and drug addiction for several years, has signed a book deal to pen a memoir about his troubled life – and RadarOnline.com has the details.

The book, which will be written with Anna David and is slated for release in 2013, will start with his childhood in a Detroit housing project and continue through his rise to fame, into his “dark descent” into drug addiction and finally, his road to recovery.

From the Atria Books press release:

“Sizemore went from romancing Elizabeth Hurley and Sharon Stone to being accused of domestic violence by the world’s most famous madam and went from a Beverly Hills mansion to a solitary confinement cell at Chino State Prison.”

Sizemore says: "I should have been dead many times over and honestly, I didn't know that I was going to come back from the bottom I dropped to. The fact that I'm now sober over two years and that I'm acting as much as I did before proves that people can overcome obstacles even when they're sure they can't. I hope that this book can inspire other people to never give up."
