In 2001 Will Young shot to fame as the first winner of Pop Idol. It was clear from the start that he would never be a typical pop star - and more than 10 years later he has become one of our best-loved and most intriguing artists.
From his dramatic experiences on Pop Idol; to coming out in the glare of the media spotlight; to his valiant struggles against depression; to the crazy reality of being famous, Will is open about both the highs and lows of his life. He also provides sound and practical advice on dealing with the DVLA helpline - something that has been woefully neglected by all other celebrity memoirs.
If you have ever wondered what it's like to attend a fashion show (and find yourself accidentally waving at Anna Wintour); how it feels to sing in front of thousands while fighting a catastrophic bout of low self-esteem; or be subjected to the terror that is a This Morning 'makeover', then Funny Peculiar reveals all. It also reveals what not to say if you ever meet David Beckham.
Moving, witty and scrupulously honest, Funny Peculiar is a refreshingly different and fascinating autobiography by a true original. Read by the author.

Just lovely

I really enjoyed listening to this book. It was a light hearted easy listen that explores some tricky subjects such as depression and sexuality. Will talks openly about how these have shaped his life and continue to affect him. He clearly has the ability to laugh at himself and his own mistakes. His style of story telling is sincere and his narration is easy on the ears. The book came across as honest and it made me laugh. Funny Peculiar is a very apt title for this entertaining book.

Love this so much!

To hear something so, honest and true is rare. People like to skip over the truth of things to colour themselves in certain ways. Will Young has not done this, instead has committed himself to the bare truths of himself.

And as such has created a wonderful, funny, witty, sad, and beautiful book that I could listen to again and again.

It has helped me greatly to know that even with mental health issues, someone as talented as him has done so much as continues too. It gives me hope that I can as well.

Thank you Xxx
