Book Review – Russell Brand ‘ My Booky Wook ‘

Book Description

‘My biggest problem is that I’ve lived an autobiography rather than a life.’

Russell Brand’s scandalous reminiscences were always going to have a literary flavour. But nothing you’ve heard him say on stage, radio or TV can prepare you for the impact of this beautifully written memoir.

From his troubled childhood in Essex and his addictions to drink, drugs and sex, to his giddy rise through the world of entertainment, this is not simply a story of fame but of redemption, achingly and hilariously honest throughout.
