NEW YORK (AP) — Carol Burnett’s next book likely will inspire tears along with laughter.

The beloved actress and comedian has an agreement with Simon & Schuster for a memoir about her daughter, Carrie Hamilton, who died of cancer in 2002 at age 38. The publisher announced Tuesday that Miss Burnett’s book, “Carrie and Me,” is expected in April 2013.

The memoir will be a “funny and moving” story of Miss Burnett’s relationship with her daughter, an actress and writer who appeared onstage in the musical “Rent” and on such television shows as “Touched by an Angel” and “The X-Files.”

Miss Burnett’s previous books include “This Time Together” and “One More Time.”
