Film Personality 'Borat' to Give Travel Advice in New Book

Coming to a bookstore near you: travel advice from Borat Sagdiyev.

The fictional Kazakh reporter, created by British comic Sacha Baron Cohen, has signed a book deal with Flying Dolphin Press, an imprint of Random House Inc.'s Doubleday Broadway Publishing Group.

Publisher Suzanne Herz said the volume will be two books in one: a guide to the United States for Kazakhs, and the other half a Westerner's guide to the central Asian nation of Kazakhstan.

The book, to be released in hardcover this North American autumn, will bear two titles: "Borat: Touristic Guidings To Minor Nation of U.S. and A.," and "Borat: Touristic Guidings To Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan."

Last year, Cohen's film Borat: Cultural Learnings of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. It has grossed more than $250 million worldwide.

The fake documentary, in which Cohen interacts with unsuspecting Americans, earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay, while Cohen's performance earned him a Golden Globe Award.
