Coreyography | [Corey Feldman]

Coreyography

In this brave and moving memoir, Corey Feldman is revealing the truth about what his life was like behind the scenes: His is a past that included physical, drug, and sexual abuse, a dysfunctional family from which he was emancipated at age fifteen, three high-profile arrests for drug possession, a nine-month stint in rehab, and a long, slow crawl back to the top of the box office.

Audible Editor Reviews

Editors Select, October 2013 - I admit: I swooned over Corey Feldman as a kid in the '80s and '90s. The bad-boy attitude, raspy voice, the hair - paired with his undeniable charm - skyrocketed him up the Hollywood ladder and into international heart-throb territory by age 15. In this incredibly personal memoir, Corey tears down that veneer and shares what life was really like for him all those years, from his start in the business at age 3 up through the loss of his best friend, the \"other\" Corey, Corey Haim, as an adult. As I listened to Corey tell his story, I was shocked, disturbed and sickened at the abuse he suffered - emotional, physical and sexual, which led to his drug addiction and several suicide attempts - so much so, that at times, I found myself pausing to calm down and reach for more tissues. The writing is lucid and well-paced - and Corey's raw and emotional telling makes for an unbelievably intimate listen. Highly recommended. —Jessica, Audible Editor

Publisher's Summary

A deeply personal and revealing Hollywood-survival story.

Lovable child star by age ten, international teen idol by fifteen, and to this day a perennial pop-culture staple, Corey Feldman has not only spent the entirety of his life in the spotlight, he's become just as famous for his off-screen exploits as for his roles in such classic films as Gremlins, The Goonies, and Stand by Me. He's been linked to a slew of Hollywood starlets (including Drew Barrymore, Vanessa Marcil, and adult entertainer Ginger Lynn), shared a highly publicized friendship with Michael Jackson, and with his frequent costar Corey Haim enjoyed immeasurable success as one half of the wildly popular duo "The Two Coreys,"spawning seven films, a 1-900 number, and "Coreymania" in the process. What child of the eighties didn't have a Corey Feldman poster hanging in her bedroom, or a pile of Tiger Beats stashed in his closet?

Now, in this brave and moving memoir, Corey is revealing the truth about what his life was like behind the scenes: His is a past that included physical, drug, and sexual abuse, a dysfunctional family from which he was emancipated at age fifteen, three high-profile arrests for drug possession, a nine-month stint in rehab, and a long, slow crawl back to the top of the box office.

While Corey has managed to overcome the traps that ensnared so many other entertainers of his generation—he's still acting, isa touring musician, and is a proud father to his son, Zen—many of those closest to him haven't been so lucky. In the span of one year, he mourned the passing of seven friends and family members, including Corey Haim and Michael Jackson. In the wake of those tragedies, he's spoken publicly about the dark side of fame, lobbied for legislation affording greater protections for children in the entertainment industry, and lifted the lid off of what he calls Hollywood's biggest secret.

Coreyography is his surprising account ofsurvival and redemption.

    "Best celebrity autobiography ever written!"

    This may very well be the best autobiography ever written by a celebrity, and believe you me I have read/listened to many in my 53 years!

    Corey is brutally honest in his book about himself, other celebrities, the Hollywood industry, children in the acting profession, drug abuse, child abuse and molestation, as well as other topics.

    Although Corey's descriptions of drug and child abuse brought tears to my eyes, there are other parts of the book that made me laugh; however be warned that this book is not for the timid or squeamish because Corey holds nothing back.

    I can only imagine how therapeutic this book was for Corey to write and I highly recommend it not just to his fans, but more importantly to those who have suffered from drug or child abuse.

    Definitely get the audio version that is narrated by the author as Corey does a flawless job with the narration and his emotions come through very well in his voice!

    "Humorously Brutally Honest"
    Where does Coreyography rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best and quickest "reads" so far


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Coreyography?

    His crazy mom and his whole childhood


    What about Corey Feldman’s performance did you like?

    His voices, a great Michael Jackson impersonation and he really brings to life all the characters in his life.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Meet the REAL Corey Feldman


    Any additional comments?

    I don't care how much his mom denies his story, I believe every word of it because he tells his story with such (seemingly) honest conviction with no "woes me".
    I have a whole new respect for Corey Feldman and I hope he has opened the door for more child stars to come forward and tell their stories. It's time to out these awful stage parents and the other animals in the industry who need to be exposed.
    Congrats Corey!

    "An easy listen"

    Growing up amid the teen heart-throb frenzy of the two Corey's I was mildly interested in the biography of Corey Feldman. The voice of the book is clean and simple and Corey Feldman has a pretty interesting life story. It was fascinating getting a glimpse into the world of child actors. The pressure they have to deal from their parents and the impossible task of having adult responsibilities while still being a child are gripping, like watching a train wreck. Feldman delves into the dark side of Hollywood he writes of drugs and molestation and failing careers. By the end of the book I was finding it difficult to like Corey Feldman at all. His character is weak, his decisions are terrible and he has a problem with loyalty. But there is one thing I will give him, he had the courage to put it all out there and the result is a pretty damn good biography.

    "An Amazing Story Made Better"
    What made the experience of listening to Coreyography the most enjoyable?

    I read this book before I listened to it on Audible and now I wouldn't have it any other way. The best thing about listening to this particular book is that it is read by the author himself. The story is heart wrenching and very emotional and when listening to Corey read it and tell it every point hits home.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love how this book doesn't have a set tone. There are some intensely dark moments but there are also moments that will make you laugh and smile. It is more like you're actually sitting with Corey and being told his story. It gives a lot of information and many stories about his youth but the flow together taking you through time in his shoes. That being said I also enjoy being able to feel like I've gotten a peek into his life without being overfilled with details.


    What does Corey Feldman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Anyone who is familiar with Corey Feldman knows that he has a knack for mimicking voices. The change in voices throughout the story made listening extremely enjoyable. I felt as though I was in the story, observing with my own eyes and ears.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    If I were to make a film of this book, I think the tag line would have to be " Could You Survive HollyWeird?"


    Any additional comments?

    I would absolutely recommend this book to any and everyone whether you listen to it or read it it's totally worth it. Couldn't put it down. I wish I could add more stars.

    "An Excellent Listen!"

    As someone who grew up in the 80s, Corey Feldman is one of those names you immediately recognize. Normally I'm not one to read a Hollywood star's memoir, but the book's description got my attention and I purchased and downloaded the book.

    Since then I've listened and re-listened to this book three times. Did Feldman have help in writing this memoir? If so, that's fine. If not, then I'm even more impressed.

    From the first page to the last, you'll be drawn into Feldman's story, beginning with the death of his friend, Corey Haim, then moving back in time to recount memories of his first television commercial for MdDonald's. From there, he moves forward recounting the pressures of family life and career as a successful child actor in a town that uses and discards child actors at an alarming rate. The things you'll learn are both riveting and important.

    No matter your age, you'll enjoy this book. Feldman paints such a vivid picture of his life, you feel as if you're there, living it with him. The fact Feldman narrates his own book adds to the value, and he does a superb job.

    I can't recommend this one highly enough.

    My heart goes out to the Two Coreys.....and praying that Hollywood wakes up! It's such a same that people choose to turn a blind eye to all of the evil and the destructuon of innocent lives.

    "Decent show-biz bio"

    Really amazing how this kid was raised and the dearth of emotional ties with his family. He must have had talent; he got a lot of work. Great mimic of Michael Jackson and others in his life.

    "Deeply moving, entertaining, inspiring"
    What did you love best about Coreyography?

    A deeply moving personal and honest story of the effects of childhood stardom and lack of ability to make choices as a child; of being taken advantage of commercially, emotionally and sexually. This is also a story of hope from someone who decided to rise above the problems and overcome addictions and do everything possible to uncover the deeply ingrained film industry pedophilia and to make a difference. Beautifully written and read by Corey.
