Marlo Thomas is looking back, with laughter. The 72-year-old actress is working on "Growing Up Laughing," a memoir about her childhood and the "star entertainer friends" of her father, comedian Danny Thomas," Hyperion announced Tuesday. The book comes out in September and also will feature childhood memories from Jerry Seinfeld, Jon Stewart and other contemporary comedians.

In a statement issued by Hyperion, Marlo Thomas says her own experiences made her want to learn how "the seeds of humors got planted" for other entertainers.
