This dark ruby memoir opens with a very nice raspberry like bouquet. Whatever they were paid, it is certainly not even close to what they deserve for putting up with Brand and his shenanigans. I didn’t really know much about Russell Brand until quite recently, when my cousin brought him up on a six hour hike around Lake Kawaguchi. Most girls I know: It wasn’t an “easy” read – it’s gritty and full of tragedy – but the comedian characteristically applies a humourous twist to even the darkest moments of his life addiction, prostitutes, abuse I could be a murderer or something – I’m not – but having me living in your house is still a bit weird, isn’t it?

Brand has become one of those stars, whose ubiquitous presence on every platform — from print through TV chatshows to film — prompts the feeling that the public should have a right to privacy from celebrities.

Aren’t we all equal? We do sometimes place ourselves rusdell certain groups of people, which is ultimately a selfish thing to do: At the time I was living on my own in a gorgeous flat off Brick Lane, which I’d originally shared with Amanda, the woman with whom I’d had one of most significant, romantic and destructive relationships of my soppy life.

Review: Booky Wook 2 by Russell Brand

I can’t remember exactly where I found him – he’d have been at the bottom of some escalator somewhere, playing his mouth organ. Davy O’Neill surprised his pregnant partner That curious urge to do something just to see how authority figures would wpok was apparent even then, and, yes, it got him into a lot of trouble — at least until Bugsy Malone.
