“Corey Feldman's new book is one of the best memoirs I've read all year.” ―Whitney Matheson, USA Today
“He narrates in a straightforward, conversational style that spares no details when it comes to darker subject matter...Fans of Feldman and those with an interest in the entertainment industry will appreciate the author's voice and anecdotes while feeling his pain.” ―Starred Publishers Weekly Review
“A harrowing tale of drugs, exploitation and sexual abuse. But it's an important story.” ―The Hollywood Reporter
“Corey comes clean about hard truths.” ―US Weekly
“As director and producer of many films that have featured child actors, I'd thought I'd seen and heard it all. Coreyography both entertained and delighted me with stories of Corey Feldman's life in Hollywood, as well as the Brat Pack. It shocked me even more. It's a book written from the heart, about a young man who is extremely talented and obviously pained; and that pain gave him the insight and ability to write a book that shed some real light on what happens to youth in Hollywood. An incredible read.” ―Richard Donner, Director

I picked this one up not expecting much - especially since I seem to be in a reading slump these days (can't find anything great).
Imagine my surprise when I found myself enjoying this memoir. Unlike many memoirs, Corey was a child star so his younger days are actually pertinent to the story - and Feldman mercifully kept the child years short and to the point. In fact, this book is written throughout in this fashion - while he covers every aspect of his life, he doesn't go on and on about the minute details and manages to focus longer on the subjects or things that actually make this memoir interesting.
Yes, he covers Michael Jackson and he also covers the rotten childhood he has had. He also talks about other things which came as a bit of a surprise to me (no spoilers sorry!).
Throughout though, there is a surprising tone of sadness and it is apparent that Feldman was (is?) not a happy, happy guy. He details the gory details about Hollywood and made me want to stay as far away from there as possible.
Now, I am not sure if this book is pure fiction or if this truly is how he feels about his life - because I have heard him in interviews and he can come off as flaky and self-serving at times, but I do believe that his thoughts and feelings as described here are sincere...
When I saw in the paper that he was coming out with this book I did some searches online. I was and still am appalled at some of the negativity that surrounds Corey Feldman's career. People say things online, behind the luminous veil of the computer screen, that they would never say to someone's face, and that is much more true for celebrities than for the rest of us. Their lives are an open book, even though that "book" tends to be full of lies put out there by magazines and people with their own agendas. (I was happy to see an interview Corey did with Brandon Kaplan at the end of the summer. Of all that I have seen online, this interview seemed positive, honest, fair and real.)
The book was auto-delivered to my Kindle on Sunday and I just finished it this morning. It is full of stories from his beginnings in the industry straight through to today and he is brutally honest about some very difficult times in his life and the lives of his close friends. He paints a very real picture of the movie business from the perspective of a young actor, who more often than not, is not calling the shots.Read more ›
There is no question that pedophiles seek out children. And that parents in the industry have exploited their child stars.Does anyone remember any stars from the 1970s or 1980's that did not get ruined or hit a wall of drugs by the time them were a young adult? What child can understand and comprehend power, sexual advances, drugs, manipulation, contracts? Who can survive that without protection and guidance.
Its only when people speak up that we can learn of the dangers that prevail. No one would want to have to tell this story. It takes a strong person who's done a lot of work to get their story out.
Hollywood had a very very very dark side. Corey Feldman is shinning some light and we should applaud the effort. Thank you Corey Feldman for being strong and honest. Parents, take a very close second and third and even fourth look at those weird overly nice adults just so eager to take care of your kids. And watch their girlfriends and boyfriends too. The way the world is, your instincts should be powerful to protect and watch over your children.Read more ›
