Summary

If I'm going to tell the story of a life, my life, then I need to tell it warts and all. If the tale is too saccharine sweet then what can the reader take away from it? What do they learn about you? I've written everything down. The shit, the death, fun, naughtiness, addiction, laughter, laughter, laughter, some tears and lots of love and happiness. That ,to me, is a better reflection of a human's life.
Nick's family life was difficult, blighted by alcoholism, illness and sudden misfortune, meaning they lost everything overnight. He left school early and drifted from job to job, dogged by his own personal demons. It's something of a miracle that Nick survived and even more that he would achieve such success with his writing, acting and comedy.
In Truths, Half Truths and Little White Lies, Nick paints a brilliantly funny, moving and brutally candid portrait of childhood, adolescence and eventual success.

Enlightening, Entertaining and Moving

Very entertaining and interesting look at Nick's life, very much bolstered by narration from the man himself.

In turns surprising, funny, a little shocking and very moving, if you enjoy Nick's work or not, it's a book worth experiencing.

Peters out ever so slightly towards the end, where it fades out to bridge to a follow up volume.

Well worth the cost and effort!

Unique Frost humour & gut-wrenchingly sad

Hilarious and also very sad. Frost's voice makes the book come alive. Would definitely recommend.

Beautiful and insightful

As a fan of Nick Frost and the work he's done it's great to get an insight into who he is as a person. It's not often you get to listen to someone talk about their lives and their experiences. Hearing him read the story you get the sense that he's not reading from a book but in fact hanging out with you recounting his life informally.

A very interesting read!

I admit, I could have kept on and on listening to you Nick, your very funny and quick. I love your humor. Thank you for sharing your life.
It took some doing figuring out some of the dialect, but... I am a huge fan of yours and have seen many of your films and shows ha, I think I did pretty well😀. I can't wait till your next book.
