In his highly anticipated third memoir, Rupert Everett tells the story of how he set out to make a film of Oscar Wilde's last days, and how that ten-year quest almost destroyed him. (And everyone else.) Travelling across Europe for the film, he weaves in extraordinary tales from his past, remembering wild times, freak encounters and lost friends. There are celebrities, of course. But we also meet glamorous but doomed Aunt Peta, who introduces Rupert (aged three) to the joys of make-up. In 80s Paris, his great friend Lychee burns bright, and is gone. While in 70s London, a 'weirdly tall, beyond size zero' teenage Rupert is expelled from the Central School of Speech and Drama. Unflinchingly honest and hugely entertaining, To the End of the World offers a unique insight into the 'snakes and ladders' of filmmaking. It is also a soulful and thought-provoking autobiography from one of our best-loved and most-talented actors and writers. --Este texto se refiere a la edición hardcover..

It is also a soulful and thought-provoking autobiography from one of our best-loved and most talented actors and writers. --Este texto se refiere a la edición paperback.. The joy of Everett as a writer has always been his pitilessly clear-eyed perspective, especially of himself...Everett has become one of the most delightful writers about modern fame...He has a writing style as seductive as his youthful beauty...every sentence Everett writes rings with his personality, and it's a personality that has always been irresistible, Hadley Freeman, Guardian Book of the Day This is tremendous, Rev. Richard Coles Like its preceding volumes, Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins and Vanished Years, it quivers with honesty, A-list gossip and sardonic prose...We should really start describing him as a writer who acts, rather than the other way round...He's brilliantly caustic on Hollywood and the march of time...."Why hadn't I realised I could write?" he asks of his younger self. The answer, probably, is simple. He needed those years of excess, hissy fits and humiliations to fuel his imagination, The Times In a sharp, scabrous account of his lifelong love of Oscar, the actor again proves himself a masterly writer...it is just about everything you could want, at least in a memoir by an actor. We know, by now, that Everett is a deliciously gifted writer. Nothing and no one escapes his attention...However wasteful and capricious his first profession, we know that he is perfectly safe. The blank page will henceforth always be his. He is a writer to his (aching) bones, Rachel Cooke, Observer It's such a beautiful book...It's so beautifully written and it's just gorgeous, Graham Norton, the Graham Norton Show Every page of this third volume of his memoirs sparkles. He writes with ready wit, fetching self-deprecation and a turn of phrase that brings places and people vividly to life. He can capture a character in a sentence or convey the fading grandeur of a hotel and city in a few lines...You hope there are more adventures to come and that Everett continues to chronicle them with the wit and panache that he displays here, Daily Express A charming and witty account of a largely horrible experience, interspersed with lovely recollections of a more debauched past, Philip Hensher, Spectator An amazing man. And such a good writer...This book is amazing, Chris Evans, The Chris Evans Breakfast Show Such a brilliant writer, Janet Street-Porter, Loose Women Witty and well observed, it's a must-read, Grazia --Este texto se refiere a la edición paperback.. They say that sometimes ghosts don't realise they're dead and wander around screaming because no one is paying them any attention. Well, in show business you may have been dead five years before you finally twig. You howl around the corridors of power while the elect march straight through. Then one day you catch yourself in a mirror and there is nothing looking back.

Wonderful read. A tour de force. Mr Everett is a brilliant writer. My only regret is that I read it so quickly. It reads like a thriller. Despite having seen the film and loved it I kept feeling that on every page the 'plug was going to be pulled'. Thank you Rupert.
Wildean Everett I actively want to dislike Everett - over-privileged posh boy etc. A friend recommended his first volume of memoir and I was taken aback at how well he writes. He is incisive, poignant and has led a truly extraordinary (and I mean that in the true meaning of the word) life. I'm only a few chapters in, but this book does not disappoint. 'The Happy Prince' is a film to watch - to see Everett portraying Wilde's heartbreaking last years....well. Everett is a fine writer and film-maker; I hope he finds funding easier in future.
Witty intelligent memoir. Excellent book as are all of Rupert Everetts works. Beautifully written, witty and interesting. A brilliant writer and actor who in my opinion is extremely underrated. Watch his film The Happy Prince which is excellent and Ruperts performance is a triumph!
Buy it! You won't be disappointed. If you have seen The Happy Prince this describes the agony and ecstasy of it's creation.
Everett never disappoints As a gay man, a bit heavy on calling he's she's, but I prefer to ignore it for his humour, humanity and kindness. Its no red carpets, but then what could be.
Always entertaing: Rupert I have been incredibly well entertained by Rupert since his first movie. The books have been a real added bonus. I am so sorry I missed this film whilst in theatres; Youtube and this book have filled in the blanks. Read this book, stay for the laughs and enjoy the lesson one always seems to take away from anything written in the pages.
