Product Details

Praise

“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

“Memoirs and Misinformation is, like the twisted political drawings Carrey posts on Twitter, entirely its own thing. A satire of Hollywood’s self-absorption coinciding with the end of the planet, none of it is real … except when it is . . . A wholly strange work of autofiction, laden with symbolism and metaphor, sometimes beautiful, sometimes tragic.” 
—Glenn Whipp, Los Angeles Times

“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
