Product description

'My life is a series of embarrassing incidents strung together by telling people about those embarrassing incidents.'Russell Brand's scandalous reminiscences were always going to have a literary flavour. But nothing you've heard him say on stage, radio or TV can prepare you for the impact of this beautifully written memoir. From his troubled childhood in Essex and his addictions to drink, drugs and sex, to his giddy rise through the world of entertainment, this is not simply a story of fame but of redemption, achingly and hilariously honest throughout.

Customer reviews

By a Book Depository customer 10 Dec 2008 3

"I was looking forward to reading this book,i feel russell writing is what you see is what you get, funny in places and his campness comes through in his book, but i have to say i feel it was not a good read, and was very dissapointed, reading this book was like waiting for paint to dry, sorry russell,stick to your stage performances, thats where the money is, thankfully the book was half price, "

Review quote

'The most talented stand-up comedian to emerge in Britain this decade, Brand combines Eddie Izzard's rare ability to carry a whole crowd along on an audacious flight of comic fancy with the carnal magnetism of the young George Best. Audiences leave a Brand performance not just entertained but actively debauched by his catalogue of erotic misadventure.' -- Daily Telegraph
