    Terrific autobiography

    Well worth reading. Sheds light on a male actor/model of exceptional beauty.

    Wit is King

    This journey by an actor is punctuated by large amounts of wit . Probably not as wise as he is witty Evans has to include Banana Skins in his title, since he has slippped on a few metaphorically along the way. He certainly has an impressive cast of characters for his life story thus far.

    A Fantastic Read

    Rupert Everett: the very name calls to mind the wit, the talent, the force that is Everett. His book is absorbing and seductive, and his life and career most cherished.

    Irreverent Wit

    I preordered this book and couldn't wait to read it. I was looking forward to an irreverent peak inside social hollywood and was not disappointed. Rupert's witty reflections were at times hilarious and written with such clarity and honesty you felt you were a fly on the wall. Although, most of the time I'm glad I wasn't. Two-thirds into the book I started to wonder is this all? How sad. The homosexual lifestyle is what I thought it might be and now this book confirms it. At least the male homosexual lifestyle. It is narcisistic, loud and lonely and childless. Now I know why God made Eve and not Steve. Forgive me for that cliche but I understand the truth of it now. This book had two channels Rupert's hysterical and cynical view of Hollywood and an up close look at the homosexual lifestyle-both were illuminating.
