Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey are working together again, this time on the audio version of new novel, Memoirs and Misinformation.
The book is a semi-autobiographical novel described as “a deconstruction of persona.” It tells a story of acting, Hollywood, agents, celebrity, privilege, friendship, romance, addiction to relevance, fear of personal erasure and “a cataclysmic ending of the world — apocalypses within and without.”
Carrey announced the news on Twitter.
Speaking about his work on the book, Daniels said, “First off, I had no idea Jim knew so many big words, but he did write it with someone else so maybe that’s where they came from. Whatever I was expecting, this wasn’t it. What a wild ride. Some of it’s true, some of it might have been, some of it can’t possibly be and yet all of it reads like Jim had grabbed me by the hand and said, ‘Let’s jump.’ Which is what working with him was like. Say a prayer, flap your arms and hope we fly. “
He added, “He’s always been a walking, talking creative adventure and Memoirs and Misinformation is no different. In Hollywood speak, it’s Alice in Wonderland meets Hunter S. Thompson. Only it’s not. Because it’s Jim.”
Memoirs and Misinformation is released on 7th July.
