ANTI-MEMOIR: Jim Carrey wanted to destroy the celebrity memoir and he’s done it. But in the pages of this novel you will come to know him better than you would in any “tell-all.” Fearless, lethally observant and very funny.
WRITING: In his collaboration with Dana Vachon—trusted friend, brilliant writer and reformed financial analyst—Carrey has discovered a voice so original it sets fire to the page and, eventually, Los Angeles.
HOLLYWOOD SATIRE: When it comes to celebrity, fame and the movie business, Carrey is the insider’s insider. Combine Day of the Locust with The Player with Get Shorty and you still will not have captured the unbridled energy of this book.
CANADA!:Lots of Canadian threads and things to delight/shock his Canadian fans.
STAR POWER: From Ace Ventura, The Mask, The Cable Guy and Dumb and Dumber to The Truman Show, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, I Love You Phillip Morris and the recent limited TV series Kidding, Jim Carrey is an actor of unparalleled range.
THE SECOND COMING: After decades dominating global box offices, Carrey has reinvented himself as a Hollywood iconoclast and social media firebrand (18.5 million followers on Twitter). He’s making headlines for fearless political commentary and genius drawings of political figures.
STAR-STUDDED CAST: Beyond Cage and Kaufman, dozens of famous and powerful faces crop up in this book, and not all emerge unscathed. There is only one who we are not allowed to mention by name. Once married to Katie Holmes, here he is known as Laser Jack Lightning, a man with amazing teeth.
THE FRIENDS: Expect large cross-promotion.
NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER
“Memoirs and Misinformation is a deconstruction of the standard-issue show biz chronicle. There aren’t any fun anecdotes about the making of Dumb and Dumber or Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Instead, there is a wholly strange work of autofiction, laden with symbolism and metaphor, sometimes beautiful, sometimes tragic, often inscrutable.” —Los Angeles Times
“I really enjoyed Jim Carrey’s ‘memoir.’ Like Jim, the book is wildly comic, inventive, subversive, and made primarily of compressed paper pulp.” —Conan O’Brien (on Twitter)
“A fantastical and trippy novel that lampoons Hollywood tropes…. As chimeric as Carrey’s onscreen persona.” —Hindustan Times (India)
”A satirical adventure in which Carrey plumbs the chasms of Hollywood’s self-obsessed culture.“ —Dave Itzkoff, The New York Times
“A simultaneously baffling and mesmerizing examination of Carrey’s psyche… a reimagining of the traditional Hollywood tell-all.” —Thomas Floyd, The Washington Post
”An engaging, fun tale that plays with the public perceptions of celebrities, questions our compulsive need to view, and contains a gloriously off-the-wall conclusion.“ —Alexander Moran, Booklist
”Not a typical tell-all…. blends moving autobiography, name-droppish tabloid fodder, science-fiction, and anti-capitalist screed." —Entertainment Weekly
“A mad fever dream… Carrey and his collaborator Vachon pull out all the stops as their protagonist Jim Carrey careens from midlife blues through love and career complications toward the apocalypse…gems of comic fantasy and the nuggets of memoir gold.” —Kirkus Reviews
