Rupert Everett really has led a fascinating life. From his incredibly privileged upbringing to his celebrity flings (both male and female) he bares all in his autobiography. Unusually for a celebrity biography, he actually wrote it himself and comparisons have been drawn to Truman Capote and Noel Coward. The real treat is that he reads it himself and his mesmerising voice will have you captivated. Even if you never read celebrity biographies you should read this one.

Synopsis

Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins by Rupert Everett

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. His memoir swoops from the eccentricities of the British upper classes to the madness of Hollywood.

Reviews

‘If Lord Byron’s memoirs had been grabbed from the flames, they’d have been like this – preposterous, self-serving, slapdash, soulful and brilliant’ Roger Lewis, Daily Telegraph

'Extremely well-written, very funny ... may well be the best thing he's ever done' Sunday Telegraph

‘Wise, witty, bitchy and generous, it’s also hilariously funny. If Everett can act half as well as he writes, there’s a new Olivier slouching around the St.Tropez bars.’ J G Ballard, Guardian
