Publisher Description

From his Glaswegian childhood and American adolescence to his starring role in the Doctor Who spinoff Torchwood, this memoir traces the life and career of actor John Barrowman. John made a name for himself with remarkable West End achievements, including an Olivier Award nomination and success in the movies The Producers and De-Lovely. Television success was also assured when Torchwood won a Best Drama BAFTA. John also lays bare his personal life: his emigration as a child, coming out to his family, turning down a job at Disney, and his civil partnership with long-term partner Scott Gill. Revelatory and insightful, told with real heart and characteristic Barrowman charm, this is a wonderful tale of how one boy achieved his dreams.

Love!

John Barrowman is my new favorite human whom I haven't met yet. He is well read, he sings, he acts, he loves musical theater, and he and his partner visit historical sites on vacations.

He has been the Beast/Prince for Beauty and the Beadt and the Prince in Cinderella on Broadway/West End. He is also Captain Jack Harkness on TorchWood a spinoff of Doctor Who.

I read his first autobiography in two days, and I was throughly entertained, touched, and impressed with his intellect. Several times I laughed out loud.

If I ever saw him, he would be one I would have to hold a conversation with him regardless of my introvert state.
