Do you read celebrity memoirs? Which ones have you read or do you want to read? Which nonexistent celebrity memoirs would you like to see?
I don’t really. I tried to think of which celebrity memoirs I’d read, and the only one I can think of is The Kid Stays in the Picture by Robert Evans. I read it after seeing the movie, and Robert Evans in an odd way became a sort of hero to me. I also once read DeeDee Ramone’s Poison Heart: Surviving the Ramones, as any punk should (how sententious do I sound?), an dI must admit, it gave me a lot of insight into the band, and punk in general, which is I suppose all one could ask for in a celebrity memoir.
That’s it. I read a few celebrity biographies when I was a child (Marilyn Monroe, Shirley Temple, Isadora Duncan), but that’s it for memoirs. They usually don’t appeal to me for some reason, perhaps due to my preference for ancient history. I really cannot think of many celebrity memoirs I would want to read, but perhaps for Elvis Presley’s. That would be something. I might read Priscilla’s memoir Elvis and Me.
I don’t know why Robert Evans’ story struck a chord with me, but it did, even unto making me a huge fan of Kid Notorious. The things we do for love.
