NEW YORK (AP) — An Italian journalist's behind-the-scenes account of conflict between Pope Francis and opponents in the Vatican will be published in the U.S. on Nov. 10.

Henry Holt and Co. announced Thursday that it had acquired U.S. rights to Gianluigi Nuzzi's "Merchants in the Temple: Inside Pope Francis' Battle Against Corruption in the Vatican." According to the publisher, Nuzzi drew upon little-known documents to reveal "unbelievable stories of scandal and corruption at the highest levels." The book also will be in Italy, Portugal, Spain, France and in Francis' native South America.

Nuzzi's previous books include "His Holiness: The Secret Papers of Benedict XVI."

Later this month, Francis will be visiting the U.S. for the first time.
