A new publication date and cover have been released for “The Office” actor Rainn Wilson’s upcoming book “The Bassoon King.” 

Wilson’s book will be published on Nov. 10, according to USA Today. The actor currently stars on the Fox show “Backstrom” and has also appeared in such films as “Super,” “The Rocker,” and “Juno." 

“[It’s] always been my dream to write a book and be a published author,” Wilson said in a statement. “I always thought it would be a book a little bit more like Game of Thrones but I found it a lot easier to tell stories about being a total loser and climbing my way up the Amway pyramid of acting than telling stories about dragons and kingdoms and dwarves and whatnot.”

The book will be released through Dutton.
