Anything Goes traces the life and career of John Barrowman, from his Glaswegian childhood and American adolescence to his first big break starring alongside Elaine Paige in "Anything Goes".

Since then, John has made a name for himself with outstanding West End achievements, including an Olivier Award nomination, and success in the movies the "Producers" and "De-Lovely". His triumphant transition into television was confirmed when "Torchwood" won a Best Drama BAFTA. John also lays bare his personal life: his emigration as a child, coming out to his family and his 2006 civil partnership with long-term boyfriend Scott Gill. "

Anything Goes is revelatory and insightful, told with real heart and characteristic Barrowman charm. This is a wonderful tale of how one boy achieved his dreams.

About the Author

Carole E. Barrowman, John's sister, will author Anything Goes. She is a professor of English at Alverno College, Wisconsin, and a journalist.

    Comments about Anything Goes:

    This book and it's follow-up "I Am What I Am" is a wonderful look at the life of a talented man who was born already out of the closet. His chatty style is amusing, laugh out load funny and touching all at the same time. Should be read by anyone (and especially their family) who may be struggling with their sexual identity. It's not the tragedy that it's made out to be.
