Description
Information
'Barry you used to be so nice,' Louisa Humphries frequently said to her son. Now, in his maturity, Australia's most famous comedian reflects on his long journey away from Niceness.

Described by the author as a 'cubist self-portrait', 'My Life As Me' revisits his childhood, his adolescence, his love-hate relationship with Australia and his adventures of the heart and of the stage. In this heady memoir his various fascinations are explored - painting, music, travel and collecting - as are his forays into marriage, and his friendships with comedians, artists and writers.

A master of comic writing, Barry Humphries tells us of his privileged youth in suburban Melbourne and, with a disarming candour that he already regrets, describes his hectic artistic and romantic career in Australia, England and America.

If Louisa Humphries could read this book, she would undoubtedly describe is as 'uncalled for'. This is a family book suitable only for adults.
