Overview

Rupert Everett's first memoir - Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins - was an international bestseller and an instant classic on publication in 2006. Reviewers compared him to Evelyn Waugh, David Niven, Noel Coward and Lord Byron. But Rupert Everett is - of course - one of a kind.

Mischievous, touching and nothing less than brilliant, this new memoir is filled with stories, from childhood to the present. Astonishing encounters; tragedy and comedy; vivid portraits of friends and rivals; razor-sharp observations of the celebrity circus from LA to London and beyond... there is something extraordinary on every page.

A pilgrimage to Lourdes with his father is both hilarious and moving. A misguided step into reality TV goes horribly wrong. From New York to Moscow to Berlin to Phnom Penh, Vanished Years takes the reader on a wild and wonderful new journey with a charming (and rather disreputable) companion.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A literary star ... Anyone who enjoys peeking behind the curtain of celebrity life will love it. However, what really sets this book apart ... is its unexpected subtlety—Daily Telegraph

[An] instant classic—Independent

Stands head and shoulders above the season's celeb memoirs ... With nobody left in Tinseltown to please, Everett unleashes himself as a hilarious, unsparingly bitchy chronicler of celebrity hell ... irresistible—Sunday Times

Gorgeous ... Everett is fearless when gossiping about A-listers because he wants nothing from them ... most of all he is just a very good writer indeed—Observer

After reading Vanished Years I didn't just want to buy the book but kidnap its author and gallivant about town with him for ever—Guardian
