Waterstones Liverpool is delighted to welcome comedy actor and writer Nick Frost to discuss his incredible autobiography Truths, Half-Truths and Little White Lies.
Frost starred in cult TV comedy “Spaced", working with Simon Pegg, with whom he would go on to make the Cornetto trilogy of films – "Shaun of the Dead", "Hot Fuzz", and "The World’s End".
Frost says - '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.
