Annotation:
UK comic and MTV's goof-of-the-moment Russell Brand reminisces about his history of drugs, eating disorders, alcoholism, depression, self-mutilation, and more drugs. And did I mention drugs yet? Brand puts Robert Downey Jr. and Keith Richards to shame with his whimsical tales of swapping saliva-covered drugs with strangers, sharing heroin needles with the homeless, and (perhaps as an ode to Richard Pryor) lighting himself on fire while smoking crack. Sure, it was all terrific fun while it lasted, but "Remember, kids, don't try this at home." The calmer, cleaner Brand is only providing these details of his degradation so that the rest of us can mercifully avoid such delightful debauchery.

Praise

"[Brand] is not just charming but also quick-witted, as evidenced by his entertaining memoir...[which] offers surprisingly sharp insight into his own excesses and frailties, vividly depicting his working-class childhood..." - Joy Press 03/13/2010

"You can get away with admitting your very worst behavior, Mr. Brand tells us here, if you simply precede that admission with the words 'to my shame.' ...So then, to my shame, I'll admit I sort of liked MY BOOKY WOOK....I laughed out loud at least a dozen times." - Dwight Garner 03/19/2010

"MY BOOKY WOOK is a richly detailed memoir that's peppered with both evocative descriptions of the author's homeland and memorable lines..." - Clark Collis 03/20/2010

"Brand withholds nothing. He drinks. He smokes. He scores. He dope-fiends. And he regrets nothing except those incidents of depravity he may have forgotten." - Bill Scheft 03/29/2010
