Ezekiel Emanuel, the bioethicist and former health policy adviser—who also happens to be the eldest of the three Emanuel super-brothers—has written a memoir about his windy city childhood.

Arts Beat has the scoop:

“Growing up Emanuel,” to be published by Random House, will reveal stories of Mr. Emanuel’s parents, Benjamin and Marsha Emanuel, and describe “the free-wheeling, competitive, civic-minded, and over-achieving environment that his parents fostered,” his publisher said in a statement. “Emanuel casts new details on well-known episodes of his and his brothers’ early lives and reveals never before told stories of their growing up in Chicago.” No publication date was announced.

It’s no Do No Harm, but we’ll take it. Team Zeke!
