'Coming Clean'

Rhode Island U.S. Rep. Patrick Kennedy, son of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy, above, is writing a memoir.

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt announced recently Kennedy's "Coming Clean" is planned for next fall. The publisher says Kennedy, who has struggled with depression and alcohol and drug addiction, will write "a truly revealing, intimate portrait."

The 43-year-old Democrat is retiring from Congress after serving eight terms.
