NEW YORK (AP) - HarperCollins has acquired world rights to a book by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo about his life and the "profound moments" of his first term in office, including signing gay-marriage legislation.
    
The publisher told The Associated Press exclusively Monday that Cuomo's book will be a "full and frank look at his public and private life."
    
HarperCollins says Cuomo will touch on his role as a father, his years as New York's attorney general, his role in establishing a national provider of transitional housing for the homeless and his signing of strict gun control legislation.
    
The book also will chronicle his years as secretary of Housing and Urban Development under President Bill Clinton.
    
The book is scheduled to be published next year.
    
Cuomo's office confirms the book deal but won't comment on details.
