NEW YORK (AP) — National Book Award winner James McBride is returning to nonfiction for his next project.

The author of “The Good Lord Bird” has a deal with Spiegel & Grau for a book about the late James Brown. “Kill ‘Em and Leave: Searching for the Real James Brown” is tentatively scheduled for March 2016.

The new book will be edited by Cindy Spiegel, who worked with McBride on his million-selling memoir “The Color of Water.” According to the publisher, “Kill ‘Em and Leave” will trace the “true roots” of Brown and will include interviews with sources who “have never spoken on the record before.” McBride himself is a saxophonist who has performed with his own band.

“The Good Lord Bird” won the National Book Award for fiction in 2013.
