Basketball great Bill Walton is ready to recap his amazing career and even more amazing recovery.  Simon & Schuster announced Wednesday that Walton, 59, is working on a memoir that will come out in the fall of 2013.

The book is tentatively called "Back From the Dead." It will cover everything from Walton's triumphs with UCLA to his overcoming a stutter and becoming a broadcaster to the collapsed spine that left him hardly able to move for three years. The book will be co-authored by veteran sportswriter John Papanek.

 

Financial terms were not disclosed. Walton was represented by Washington attorney Robert Barnett, whose clients range from President Barack Obama to singer/actress Barbra Streisand.
