Typical Bruce. And we love it!
on 23 June 2005
I'd just finished reading Bruce's autobiography "If Chins Could Kill", and saw that he had a new book coming out. It sounded great because it was going to be a work of fiction, yet based on a supposed real part of his life. As Bruce puts it himself: "According to my publisher, I haven't 'done' enough since 2001 to warrant another memoir."
The story is about when Bruce is playing a doorman for a hotel called Foyl in a film directed by Mike Nichols and starring Richard Gere. I haven't finished this book, but so far it is typical Bruce Campbell. Everything from the dry, sarcastic sense of humour, to pointing out the ridiculous bureaucracy in the entertainment industry. And, as with his autobiography, it is probably more important that his writing style feels very much like having your best mate over for a drink and telling a story. Campbell doesn't distance himself from the reader, which I think is a big plus.
In a word - buy this book. It's funny, clever and feels like it's been written by a genuine person. Brilliant.
