NEW YORK, N.Y. - Tim Russert isn't around to celebrate the 10th anniversary of "Big Russ & Me," his bestseller about his dad. But Russert's son, Luke, is stepping in.

Weinstein Books announced Wednesday that an anniversary edition of "Big Russ" is scheduled for May release and features a new preface by Luke Russert. A sentimental favourite, the book tells of Tim Russert's childhood in a working-class neighbourhood in Buffalo, N.Y., and the life lessons he received from his father.

In May, "Big Russ" also will come out as an e-book for the first time.

Tim Russert, the longtime political analyst and host of NBC's "Meet the Press," died in 2008 at age 58. Luke Russert is a correspondent for NBC News.
