Natalie Cole, famed singer and daughter of crooner Nat King Cole, is writing another memoir, publisher Simon & Schuster announced Monday.

The jazz icon will pen all about her kidney transplant surgery and the death of her younger sister in a new memoir. Cole is teaming up with author David Ritz for a new book, entitled Love Brought Me Back. Ruiz’s name will sound familiar to bookworms who frequent the biography stacks; the author has written biographies on music legends like Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin. Cole, 60, who has struggled with kidney disease, will chronicle the transplant that saved her life last year and the the death of her sister Cookie, which occurred the very day she had the operation.

The book is due to hit the shelves in November.

Love Brought Me Back will be Cole’s second memoir. In 2000, she published her autobiography Angel on My Shoulder, which described her public battle with cocaine addiction. That tome spawned a 2001 made-for-TV movie, starring Theresa Russell.
