Emmerdale is a much loved British soap with an audience of millions tuning in on an almost daily basis to watch - the fan base is nation wide and Patrick is a popular cast member. Having overcome a difficult childhood Patrick's story will also appeal to memoir readers as well as the celebrity biography market. Patrick is available for all publicity. In a rip-roaring career spanning 40 years as an actor, Patrick Mower has certainly made a name for himself. Rising to fame in the West End, before finding further success in TV and film, his urban sophistication and man-about-town image made him the epitome of style and established him as a national heartthrob. Now one of Britain's best-loved actors, he became well known for his off-screen behavior - Patrick's life has been a rollercoaster of relationships, glamor, and high-jinks. This is a man who has and done it all... But behind the image of a flamboyant charmer and jet-setter, lies a complex character shaped by childhood poverty and an alcoholic, abusive father. The deprivation of his early life and the lack of emotional support from the man who instead of bringing him up kindly drove him to attempted suicide, simultaneously motivated Patrick to escape such oppression and achieve great things, while also creating deep insecurities that fuelled the need to womanize for which he was so well known. In this frank and refreshing book, Patrick speaks candidly of his exploits, while also assessing what pushed him toward behavior that he was not always proud of. Packed with wonderful anecdotes about every aspect of life in and out of the spotlight--the celebrities, the parties, and some downright embarassing moments--as well as all the back-stage gossip from the Emmerdale set, this is a touching, honest, and truly hilarious autobiography.
