Famous people from all walks of life have achieved celebrity status, or in some cases notoriety, after starting out in unpromising, often menial jobs. Many people know that Hitler was once a painter and decorator, that Glenda Jackson worked on the lipstick counter at Boots and that Rod Stewart used to be a gravedigger. But who would have thought that Jeffrey Archer began his career as a deck-chair attendant, that Sting was a member of the Inland Revenue, that Sylvester Stallone was a lion cage cleaner and that Warren Beatty was a rat catcher? This book lists hundreds of personalities whose working lives began in unglamorous jobs. Many of the entries are supported by quotes from the stars featured.
