NEW YORK, July 31 (UPI) -- U.S. President George W. Bush, sometimes known as Bush 43, has written a biography of his father, Bush 41, that is set for publication in November, his publisher says.

In a press release, Crown said the book will be available in both print and digital form on Nov. 11. The book, described as "a unique and intimate biography" of President George H.W. Bush, as yet has no title.

"Forty-three men have served as President of the United States," Crown said. "Countless books have been written about them. But never before has a President told the story of his father, another President, through his own eyes and in his own words."

The two Bushes were the second father and son to be elected president in U.S. history. John Adams held the office from 1797 to 1801 and his son, John Quincy Adams, from 1825 to 1829.

The book will cover the elder Bush's life from childhood to his post-presidential years, as well as his influence on his son.

"George H. W. Bush is a great servant, statesman, and father," George W. Bush said. "I loved writing the story of his life, and I hope others enjoy reading it."

Crown published Decision Points, George W.'s presidential memoir.
