Bookseller Recommendation

Memoirs and Misinformation

“Wow! What a strange trip this book is!!! Written by Jim Carey and Dana Vachon, and narrated by Jeff Daniels, Memoirs and Misinformation is a wild rollercoaster ride that takes us through Hollywood to—well I don’t want to spoil the ride, but you will never guess where you will end up. This book is NOT Jim Carey’s memoir, though at times it uses bits and pieces of his life—naming many celebrities (Nic Gage is his best friend, Gwyneth Paltrow becomes an avenging killer), as well as mentioning events that really happened. It’s fantastical and weird (okay, one plot element—Jim Carey is asked to play Chairman Mao, and really gets into Mao’s head). I loved this book, and I think I loved it even more as an audio book because Jeff Daniels’ narration is so wonderful and crazy that it sounds as if Jim Carey is talking dir”

Description

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

"None of this is real and all of it is true." --Jim Carrey


Meet Jim Carrey. Sure, he's an insanely successful and beloved movie star drowning in wealth and privilege--but he's also lonely. Maybe past his prime. Maybe even . . . getting fat? He's tried diets, gurus, and cuddling with his military-grade Israeli guard dogs, but nothing seems to lift the cloud of emptiness and ennui. Even the sage advice of his best friend, actor and dinosaur skull collector Nicolas Cage, isn't enough to pull Carrey out of his slump.

But then Jim meets Georgie: ruthless ingénue, love of his life. And with the help of auteur screenwriter Charlie Kaufman, he has a role to play in a boundary-pushing new picture that may help him uncover a whole new side to himself--finally, his Oscar vehicle! Things are looking up!

But the universe has other plans.

Memoirs and Misinformation is a fearless semi-autobiographical novel, a deconstruction of persona. In it, Jim Carrey and Dana Vachon have fashioned a story about acting, Hollywood, agents, celebrity, privilege, friendship, romance, addiction to relevance, fear of personal erasure, our "one big soul," Canada, and a cataclysmic ending of the world--apocalypses within and without.
