Product Description

Review

"A propulsive read ...his garrulous tone survives the transition to the page... there are open-hearted moments, especially about his family, that are rather moving" (The Times)

"What hoists his book several rungs above most showbiz autobiographies is his willingness to address his failings... by the end, I suspect that they [the readers] - like me - will have been won over by his candour and charm" (John Preston Daily Mail)

"Chatty, funny, hugely engaging, honest ... an endearingly honest account of his life so far..." (Heat)

"James reveals more shocking and hilarious tales behind his rise to fame in his autobiography" (The Sun)

"...the writing - matey and witty with bursts of Smithy-style sincerity - is distinctively Corden." (Independent)

Book Description

The warm, cheeky, and hilarious story of one of our most popular comedy stars

From the Inside Flap

So... my first book. The story of my life. I've often thought about this moment, about what it would be like to write my memoirs. I always thought it would make me feel important. It doesn't. If anything it makes me feel a little strange.

The truth is, I should never have been this guy. I wasn't the cool, clever, good-looking boy at school. I was never supposed to be the person who writes books or TV shows, hosts award ceremonies or appears in films. Things like that shouldn't happen to someone like me. But I always dreamt of it, hoped for it, longed for it: throughout school when I was disruptive and disinterested, in my teens when I tried to form my own boy band and through hundreds of auditions for parts which were met with constant rejection.

Until finally I co-wrote a TV series called Gavin and Stacey. And my whole life changed. In every single way. Lots of it good and parts of it bad. Some of it funny and bits of it sad.

This is that story. The story of how I found myself here, talking to you.
