The Big Bang Theory’s Kunal Nayyar is debuting a collection of hilarious and inspiring essays in his upcoming memoir, Yes, My Accent Is Real: And Some Other Things I Haven’t Told You, and EW has the cover to reveal exclusively below.

Yes, My Accent Is Real will share stories of Nayyar’s life, from his early years growing up in New Delhi to landing the role of his dreams as misfit astrophysicist Raj on the hit series, The Big Bang Theory. He’ll introduce fans to his James Bond-loving father who gave him some expert advice (“And, when in doubt, use a spreadsheet”), describe his very awkward first kiss and talk all about his extravagant wedding to a former Miss India in a chapter called “My Big Fat Indian Wedding.”

“I was born in London and brought up in New Delhi, India. I’ve cleaned toilets in Portland, been held up for 76 cents in Philadelphia, and my first acting job on TV was playing a terrorist,” Nayyar said in a release. “Also my father thinks he’s James Bond and I once played a Star Wars board game for 36 straight hours. Then I married Miss India. So, why not write a book? It’s the logical next step. Obviously.”

Yes, My Accent Is Real: And Some Other Things I Haven’t Told You hits selves Sept. 15.
