Publisher's 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.
