To the End of the World: Travels with Oscar Wilde [9781408705117]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

They say that sometimes ghosts don't realize they're dead and wander around screaming because no one is paying them any attention. Well, in show business you may have been dead five years before you finally twig. You howl around the corridors of power while the elected march straight through. Then one day you catch yourself in a mirror and there is nothing looking back.

In his highly anticipated third memoir, Rupert Everett tells the story of how he set out to make a film of Oscar Wilde's last days, and how that ten-year quest almost destroyed him. (And everyone else.)

Travelling across Europe for the film, he weaves in extraordinary tales from his past, remembering wild times, freak encounters and lost friends. There are celebrities, of course. But we also meet glamorous, but doomed Aunt Peta, who introduces Rupert (aged three) to the joys of make-up. In 80s Paris, his great friend Lychee burns bright, and is gone. While in 70s London, a 'weirdly tall, beyond size zero' teenage Rupert is expelled from the Central School of Speech and Drama.

Unflinchingly honest and hugely entertaining, Tainted Glory offers a unique insight into the 'snakes and ladders' of film-making. It is also a soulful and thought-provoking autobiography from one of our best-loved and most talented actors and writers.

AUTHOR: Rupert Everett shot to fame with the film Another Country in 1984 and has been a hugely successful actor and writer for many years. His films include The Madness of King George III; My Best Friend's Wedding; Shrek II and III; Shakespeare in Love and St Trinian's. His first memoir, Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins, was a Sunday Times bestseller and its sequel, Vanished Years, won the Sheridan Morley Prize for Biography. His film of Oscar Wilde's last years, The Happy Prince, was released in 2018 to widespread acclaim.
