An element of drama has always attended Rupert Everett, even before he swept to fame with his performances in such films as Another Country and My Best Friend's Wedding. He was in Moscow during the fall of communism; in Berlin the night the Wall came down; and at home in downtown Manhattan on September 11th. By the age of seventeen he was friends with Andy Warhol and Bianca Jagger, and since then he has been up close and personal with some of the most famous women in the world: Julia Roberts, Madonna, Sharon Stone, Donatella Versace. From the eccentricities of the British upper classes to the madness of Hollywood, from the Russian steppes to an Easter egg hunt in Elizabeth Taylor's garden, Everett reveals himself as a consummate storyteller and a charming guide to life in the fast lane.--From publisher description.

I'm not sure why I read this book because I really didn't know who Rupert Everett is. It's obvious that he is really impressed with himself and never misses an opportunity to drop a name. The book had some redeeming qualities, but I can't really recommend it. It makes you glad you are not part of the Hollywood scene.
