This winter, a slew of celebrities are releasing their biographies, with some in particular set to be standouts. The ideal solution if you’re stuck for Christmas gift inspiration, we say.
Anna Kendrick: Scrappy Little Nobody
The Tony-nominated and Drama Desk award-winning American actress and singer has produced a collection of autobiographical essays recounting memorable moments from her career. If the book is half as entertaining and likeable as Kendrick herself, it’s sure to be a winner.
Lauren Graham: Talking As Fast As I Can
Fans of the TV series Gilmore Girls will enjoy Graham’s autobiography, which quickly became a New York Times Bestseller when released in November 2016. The books contains essays, photos and excerpts from Graham’s diary she wrote while filming Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.
John Scott: A Guy Like Me
For those who enjoy a good underdog story, in A Guy Like Me, John Scott recounts the tale of how he went from average (if that) hockey player to one of the NHL’s most feared defenders, adored by the public and media. A true Cinderella story.
Robert Wagner: I Loved Her in the Movies
The author of two New York Times Bestselling novels, this time Wagner turns his attention to the female celebrities he met over his years as a Hollywood actor. From Marilyn Monroe and Glenn Close, to Joan Crawford and Bette Davis, Wagner reveals insights into some of the most famous women from the silver screen.
Phil Collins: Not Dead Yet
Fans of the singer will enjoy Collins’ memoir of his long career, including all his ups and downs, successes and failures, published at the same time as tickets went on sale for his 2017 UK tour of the same name.
Bruce Springsteen: Born to Run
The top-selling Christmas autobiography this year, Springsteen’s book dives into the musician’s passion for performance and his lifelong struggle with depression without coming across as sensational. Critics across the board have given this ‘Tougher than the Rest’ singer-songwriter a unanimous thumbs up.
