Sue Baker's view...

Rupert Everett is a very talented writer; the piece on his father’s last days is quite special. He has wit and style, rides the successes and the failures, observes and skewers the pretentious, laughs at the grotesque in life, sympathises with the losers. Many “star” autobiographies are either ghost-written, a gloss of anecdote that observe little and comment less. With Rupert Everett you feel you have the truth, however uncomfortable.

Synopsis

Vanished Years by Rupert Everett

Rupert Everett's first memoir - Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins - was an international bestseller and an instant classic on publication in 2006. Reviewers compared him to Evelyn Waugh, David Niven, Noel Coward and Lord Byron. But Rupert Everett is - of course - one of a kind. Mischievous, touching and nothing less than brilliant, this new memoir is filled with brand-new stories, from childhood to the present. Astonishing encounters; tragedy and comedy; vivid portraits of friends and rivals; razor-sharp observations of the celebrity circus from LA to London and beyond...there is something extraordinary on every page. A pilgrimage to Lourdes with his father is both hilarious and moving. A misguided step into reality TV goes horribly wrong.
