Overview

Coreyography by Corey Feldman

"Spares no details." —Starred Publishers Weekly Review

"An incredible read." —Richard Donner, Director

"People always ask me about life after childhood stardom. What would I say to parents of children in the industry? My only advice, honestly, is to get these kids out of Hollywood and let them lead normal lives." —Corey Feldman

A deeply personal and revealing Hollywood-survival story.

Lovable child star by age ten, international teen idol by fifteen, and to this day a perennial pop-culture staple, Corey Feldman has not only spent the entirety of his life in the spotlight, he's become just as famous for his off-screen exploits as for his roles in such classic films as Gremlins, The Goonies, and Stand by Me. He's been linked to a slew of Hollywood starlets (including Drew Barrymore, Vanessa Marcil, and adult entertainer Ginger Lynn), shared a highly publicized friendship with Michael Jackson, and with his frequent costar Corey Haim enjoyed immeasurable success as one half of the wildly popular duo "The Two Coreys," spawning seven films, a 1-900 number, and "Coreymania" in the process. What child of the eighties didn't have a Corey Feldman poster hanging in her bedroom, or a pile of Tiger Beats stashed in his closet?

Now, in this brave and moving memoir, Corey is revealing the truth about what his life was like behind the scenes: His is a past that included physical, drug, and sexual abuse, a dysfunctional family from which he was emancipated at age fifteen, three high-profile arrests for drug possession, a nine-month stint in rehab, and a long, slow crawl back to the top of the box office.

While Corey has managed to overcome the traps that ensnared so many other entertainers of his generation—he's still acting, is a touring musician, and is a proud father to his son, Zen—many of those closest to him haven't been so lucky. In the span of one year, he mourned the passing of seven friends and family members, including Corey Haim and Michael Jackson. In the wake of those tragedies, he's spoken publicly about the dark side of fame, lobbied for legislation affording greater protections for children in the entertainment industry, and lifted the lid off of what he calls Hollywood's biggest secret.

Coreyography is his surprising account of survival and redemption.

Corey Feldman is a Hollywood legend in some regards and a Hollywood joke in other regards. He was a fantastic child actor, then in his teens and early twenties became second fiddle to the other Corey, Corey Haim. Over the course of his career he had numerous romances with Hollywood starlets and adult film stars. This story, told in his own words, is phenomenal. I loved this book and highly recommend it.

Coreyography is an amazing book. I was so touched by Corey’s honesty about his miserable youth in Hollywood and how those traumas have stunted him in many ways. A truly great book. Five stars.

Coreography is a remarkable book. It details a torrid childhood in Hollywood of famous actor Corey Feldman. Feldman will forever be remembered for his work is such films as Stand By Me, The Goonies, and The Lost Boys. In addition to all the information on Corey’s life, it also has a lot of information on the life of his buddy, the late Corey Haim. It is a fine book, well worth reading.

I was a die hard fan of both Coreys in the 80s. I enjoyed reminiscing on some of their films over the years; however, the book makes you take a different prospective on their rein. At the time, they seemed to have it all and you couldn't help but wonder, why they would throw it away by using drugs. The drugs were essential in easing the years of abuse. The book was brilliantly written and it brutally honest. My heart breaks for them both. Thank you Corey for writing this book for your self and your bff, Corey Haim.

This book definitely is a view of childhood actors I did not expect. Corey writes well, is very detailed, and makes you want to continue reading. The only thing I was uncomfortable with is that he reveals so much about others, especially the other Corey. Is this all true? We can't know 100%, but it certainly is a good read.

Really liked the two coreys, thought they were treated like dirt after hollywood felt they had no use for them anymore. Great read, highly recommend.

Corey always made the movies he was in special because of his acting and personality. This is a good book and it also has done good by exposing the rotten pedophiles preying on child actors. Corey should be proud that he overcame so much hardship and suffering. I found this book to be very inspiring for that reason. As a victim of abuse myself I appriciate Coerys honesty and courage in dealing with this topic.

I absolutely loved this book! It explained so much, especially being a fan of both Corey's and child of the 80's. I am just happy that Corey is happy, healthy, and enjoying life with his son. Also, thank you, Corey, for finally giving your brother the peace he so deserved. This book touched me so much, I felt as if I traveled Corey's journey with him. Great job!

Love it! Very personal and very well writen. I personally enjoyed that he didn't talk only about himself. I also think he was very respectful when including others in his story even if their role wasn't a positive one. Sometimes I smiled and sometimes my heart ached for him. Exactly what I hoped for going into this book.

I have read just about every celebrity biography out there for the last 30 years and have to say this was a very honest story that I read almost beginning to end. Never boring and quite consuming I wanted his book to keep going and hope one day he writes a sequel. Very good book!

I loved this book! It is very well written and was hard to put down. I had no idea of the struggles that Corey faced growing up and I commend him for being brave enough to tell his story.

I bought this book because I was totally in love with the "Corey's" I found this book to be everything I expected. It was sad, and happy and everything in between. My heart ached over and over reading it. I would say a must read for any child of the 80's-90's

I would never have thought that Corey would throw his "bff" under the bus like he did in this book. As he said it was Haim's story to tell...not his but after Haim died it became his?! He spoke openly about the sexual abuse Haim endured but didnt talk about his as much. The book seemed to me a place to "drop names" and not tell much of his story....just promote what movies and shows he did and with who. It seemed to me he told more of Corey Haims story than his own. I can understand how Judy is very offended by this as Haim isnt alive to defend or correct what was stated about him. In my opinion a TRUE friend would never tell others secrets or anything that would make that person look bad whether they are alive or dead. So to the Corey whom wrote this book...maybe more about your life and not about others----just think about it!

I would not consider myself a Corey Feldman fan. However, after reading this I find that he is a very interesting person and someone who has gone through A LOT in his life. It was definitely disturbing to read the dark sides of his story, but definitely a story that I am glad was shared!

This book was such an exciting read! I couldn't put it down, but when I had to, I couldn't wait to get back to it. Corey is such a strong person. Thanks for writing this book and being so honest. I've always been a fan. Now even more so!

well written. good story telling. corey has a lot of things to spill about his life. he talks about his growing up a young actor in Hollywood, and of course mentions many other young stars names. I didn't mind the name dropping simply because it sets the tone of voice to tell the story of how those other young Hollywood kids behaved behind the scenes. this was a time before TMZ and radar online. his insights and name droppings I found interesting because it's gossip that wasn't really know back then. he speaks of his friendship in great detail with corey haim. I think once you read corey's book, you have a better understanding for the person he is now. he's definitely flawed now, and it's quite apparent as to how he's evolved into the person that he is due to his experiences as a young kid growing up in Hollywood.
