While NBC will no longer create new episodes of "The Office," that surely won't stop fans from getting their fix of the loveable Dwight Schrute.

The New York Times reported that former Office star Rainn Wilson has struck a publishing deal to write a book about his life.

Wilson later confirmed the news on Twitter.

The publisher describes the book as, "Wilson's journey from nerd to drama geek, his period of 'mild debauchery' as a young actor in New York, and his years on 'The Office.'"

But make sure you don't call it a "memoir," because despite what his publisher says, the 47-year-old comedian refuses to label it as such.

"If I were in my 80s, had cured a disease and survived a war, I would be entitled to write a memoir," Wilson said in a statement.

"No. The guy who is best known for playing a paper salesman with a bad haircut, tweeting fart jokes and starting a quirky spirituality Web site does not merit a ‘memoir.'"

The "non-memoir" is slated to land on bookshelves in 2014.
