Whether sweeping the stage for the Royal Shakespeare Company or costarring with Faye Dunaway and an orangutan in Dunstan Checks In (they both took ages to get ready), Rupert Everett always brings as much energy and talent to his life as he does to his career. Who else has lived in Paris with Beatrice Dalle, modeled for Versace and Valentino, been possessed by the spirit of Anthony Perkins, and played bridge with Christopher Isherwood?
A superb raconteur and a keen observer of human folly, Rupert Everett turns his life into a captivating story of love, nostalgia, fame, glamour, gossip, and drama. From the eccentricities of the British upper classes to the madness of Hollywood, from the Russian steppes to an Easter egg hunt in Elizabeth Taylor's garden, Everett reveals himself as a storyteller and a charming guide to life lived in the fast lane.

"Glowingly, resplendently alive...beautifully written...damnably charming." (Independent, UK)
"[A] continuously brilliant memoir, the best theatrical autobiography since Noel Coward's...a superb and unexpectedly inspiring achievement." (Guardian, UK)
As far as Hollywood memoirs go this is an enjoyable listen. Mr Everett has a great wit and keeps you entertained and supplies enough giggles and gossip to endear you even more to him.
I love his voice! this was a great peek into the life of a rising star and the trials associated with being gay in an awakening world. I liked this listen!
I so enjoyed this book very much. Rupert Everett is down to Earth and yet traveled in an echelon of high society. His story is very intriguing and approachable. I want to know more about him, his thoughts and life. I would definitely recommend it.
