Reviewers compared Rupert Everett's first memoir, Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins, 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 brand-new stories from childhood to the present. Astonishing encounters, tragedy and comedy, vivid portraits of friends and rivals, and razor-sharp observations of the celebrity circus from L.A. to London and beyond—there is something extraordinary on every page. 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.

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 -- Books Of The Year Sunday Times
