In the electrifying follow up, comedian Russell Brand details his rapid ascent into the upper realms of fame and picks up where his international bestseller My Booky Wook left off.
"As with the clinical finality of death, all things must end; just as surely, all that exists must have a beginning. When then did I become famous? Was there a moment that could be recognised and pin pointed? Yes for me notoriety was neither incremental nor intangible..."
So begins Russell Brand's electrifying memoir of his rapid ascent into the upper realms of fame. Rarely has a sequel delivered on the promise of the original with such literary and comic gusto. InMy Booky Wook 2: This Time It's Personal, Russell Brand takes off where his international best-seller My Book Wook left off. Brand is sober and, after dedicating his life and compromising his sanity in the pursuit of fame, he has had his first taste of national notoriety. Does fame bring happiness and inner peace? Not exactly, but it does mean a lot of sex. It also ushers in an unforgettable and raucous ride through chat shows, tabloid scandals, and Hollywood, all the while detailing Brand's search for the contentment that fame can't quite grant.
My Booky Wook 2is a "celebrity memoir" unlike any you've read before: more clever and inventive than ever, Russell Brand explores the consequences of massive stardom just as he demonstrates the power of language and wit to make sense of it all.
