In 2001 Will Young shot to fame as the first winner of Pop Idol. It was clear from the start that he would never be a typical pop star—and more than 10 years later he has become one of our best-loved and most intriguing artists. From his dramatic experiences on Pop Idol; to coming out in the glare of the media spotlight; to his valiant struggles against depression; to the crazy reality of being famous, Will is open about both the highs and lows of his life. He also provides sound and practical advice on dealing with the DVLA helpline—something that has been woefully neglected by all other celebrity memoirs. If you have ever wondered what it's like to attend a fashion show (and find yourself accidentally waving at Anna Wintour); how it feels to sing in front of thousands while fighting a catastrophic bout of low self-esteem; or be subjected to the terror that is a This Morning "makeover," then Funny Peculiar reveals all. It also reveals what not to say if you ever meet David Beckham. Moving, witty and scrupulously honest, Funny Peculiar is a refreshingly different and fascinating autobiography by a true original. With free audio sampler.

Review:

Hilarious and wonderfully self-deprecating ... beautifully eloquent Gay Times As well as juicy stories ... and behind-the-scenes gossip from Pop Idol days, Will is completely candid about the depression that's had him in its grip ... as well as delving deeper the book manages to keep its levity through funny stories and sweet illustrations Attitude Entertaining ... Will Young is a man of many parts ... and now he can say with some pride that he is an amusing writer, too -- Books Of The Year Sunday Telegraph
