Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and her astronaut husband Mark Kelly are working on a memoir together. Kelly Tuesdayalso announced his retirement from the Navy and NASA.

The book, currently untitled, will be an intimate chronicle of everything from their careers and courtship to the Jan. 8 tragedy when a gunman shot Giffords in the head in Tucson, Ariz. Scribner will publish the book at a date to be determined.

"It's been really touching to us to see how much support there is for Gabby and her recovery, and how much interest there is in how she's doing and her story," Kelly said recently. ". . . we decided it was the right thing to do to put our words and our voices on paper and tell our story from our point of view." -- AP
