An element of drama has always attended Rupert Everett, even before he swept to fame with his outstanding performance in 'Another Country'. He has spent his life surrounded by extraordinary people, and witnessed extraordinary events. He was in Moscow during the fall of communism; in Berlin the night the wall came down; and in downtown Manhattan on September 11th. By the age of 17 he was friends with Andy Warhol and Bianca Jagger, and since then he has been up close and personal with some of the most famous women in the world: Julia Roberts, Madonna, Sharon Stone and Donatella Versace. Whether sweeping the floor for the Royal Shakespeare Company or co-starring with Faye Dunaway and an orang-utan 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. A superb raconteur and a keen observer of human folly (especially his own), Rupert Everett turns his life into a captivating story of love, fame, glamour, gossip and drama.

Reviews

Everett's performance in 1997's My Best Friend's Wedding turned the camaraderie between gay men and straight women into a mainstream pop culture staple. However, 2000's The Next Best Thing landed with a thud, and Everett quickly exited the rarefied air of stardom. Reading his new memoir, the veteran actor of stage and screen oozes rakish charm, a gossipy court jester providing wickedly witty-if not particularly consequential-commentary on show business shenanigans. Everett glibly dishes the dirt on such co-stars as Faye Dunaway, who Everett confides has earned the nickname "done fade away" among backstage insiders, and Sharon Stone, who coaches the skeptical Everett on channeling the aura of a character. Everett, whose family background steeped him in an Edwardian stiff-upper-lip ethos, does occasionally pause for reflection on pain and loss, especially his experiences in the waning days of the South Beach party scene. A guilty pleasure, albeit a rather sophisticated and tony offshoot of the species, this will primarily appeal to listeners who appreciate the E! cable network and In Style magazine. Simultaneous release with the Warner hardcover. (Feb.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

'A genuinely puzzling and deeply unsettling thriller. Anne Holt is the latest crime writer to reveal how truly dark it gets in Scandinavia' Val McDermid ?A thoughtful, tense novel ... This is the first of a new series. I look forward to the subsequent ones? Peter Gutteridge, OBSERVER

Never mind the plain brown wrapping of a title, Everett offers tales of a rich and wild life that has included acting in Shakespeare in Love, befriending Andy Warhol and Bianca Jagger, and watching the Berlin Wall fall. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

If your an Everett fan you will love this book. I could not put it down and was mezmerized by his stories and his life.
He is as good an author as he is an actor and you will find yourself laughing out loud as he recalls his encounters with some of the most interesting people in showbiz and you will love the chapter about his dog if your a dog lover.
Definately a must have read and also has some terrific pics of a gorgeous younger Rupert. I wanted more when I finished it and will probably read it again
