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.

    "Very Interesting Life"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Coreyography to be better than the print version?

    I love listening to the actual celebrity's voice telling the story of their life. Corey told the story of his life very well and kept my interest to the point where I couldn't wait to get back in the car and listen more. He even imitated Michael Jackson, Corey Haim, his wife, and others very well. Really enjoyed this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked hearing about the ups and downs of his life...how he would find himself successful one minute and the next down and out. I loved how he never gave up.


    Have you listened to any of Corey Feldman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first work of Corey Feldman that I have listed to.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I feel like I know Corey Feldman and I guess that's the point of the book. After it was over, I wanted more.

    Story
    "Excellent!"
    What made the experience of listening to Coreyography the most enjoyable?

    It was coming from Corey, and that made the book very easy to listen to. You can hear the joy, reluctance, revulsion and pain in his voice.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course, it was Corey Feldman.


    Have you listened to any of Corey Feldman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, this is my first Audible review.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I started to listen to the book on a Thursday and finished by Saturday evening. I even listened to it at work which I don't normally do.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a very heart-felt book. Sometimes, we think of former child actors and roll our eyes. We don't see the inner circle. He made it clear that what was done to him was not his fault, and it wasn't. He was a child with no parental supervision. Sure, he made his own choices at times but there was no adult to give him an alternative. You can tell that he wanted to make changes in his life but with the inner circle he had around him, it was very difficult. He's a very strong person. Kudos to turning his life around.

    Yes in deed.


    Any additional comments?

    A long time fan of Corey Feldman..it was hard to listen too at times due too his awful tragedies. I cried while listening to him read. It was a world I didn't think Corey Feldman has lived. It is amazing that he got through it all. It was also heart warming to hear him talk about becoming and being a father.
