Wilson’s best known for his portrayal of Dwight Schrute on NBC’s The Office. Now that the show’s over, he’s moving on to a new chapter in his life. But first, he wants to take fans on a journey of how he got from point A to B.

“If I were in my 80s, had cured a disease and survived a war, I would be entitled to write a memoir. No,” Wilson reveals, “the guy who is best known for playing a paper salesman with a bad haircut, tweeting fart jokes and starting a quirky spirituality website does not merit a ‘memoir.’ For the time being, let’s call it a Serio-Comic Examination of my Life in Art, Faith and Comedy. And beets.”
