An element of drama has always attended Rupert Everett, even before his rise to fame. He has spent his life surrounded by extraordinary people, and has witnessed extraordinary events. He was in Moscow during the fall of communism; in Berlin the night the wall came down; and at home in downtown Manhattan on September 11th. By the age of 17 he was friends with Andy Warhol and Bianca Jagger. 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 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.

    " Look -- this is just not that serious of a book, but it is an absolutely entertaining history of late 20th century camp -- sort of like a romp in the park with old friends. Grab some wine, lose the phone and remember growing up with Rupert. "
