Actor Nick Frost is busy finishing off his autobiography ahead of its publication later this year.
Frost has signed a deal with UK publisher Hodder & Stoughton for what the company describes as a “dark, exhilarating and movingly honest” memoir.
The actor grew up in a family blighted by alcoholism, illness and sudden misfortune. He left school early and drifted from job to job, dogged by his own personal demons, before pursuing an acting career.
Speaking about the book, which he has written himself, the Spaced actor said “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’m writing 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.”
Truths, Half Truths and Utter Bullshit will be released on October 8.
