Publisher's Summary

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've written 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.
Nick's family life was difficult, blighted by alcoholism, illness and sudden misfortune, meaning they lost everything overnight. He left school early and drifted from job to job, dogged by his own personal demons. It's something of a miracle that Nick survived and even more that he would achieve such success with his writing, acting and comedy.
In Truths, Half Truths and Little White Lies, Nick paints a brilliantly funny, moving and brutally candid portrait of childhood, adolescence and eventual success.

I wish there was more about his experience with working on Shawn of the Dead and all the other movies he acted in.

Beautiful and insightful

As a fan of Nick Frost and the work he's done it's great to get an insight into who he is as a person. It's not often you get to listen to someone talk about their lives and their experiences. Hearing him read the story you get the sense that he's not reading from a book but in fact hanging out with you recounting his life informally.
