A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

"None of this is real and all of it is true." --Jim Carrey


Meet Jim Carrey. Sure, he's an insanely successful and beloved movie star drowning in wealth and privilege--but he's also lonely. Maybe past his prime. Maybe even . . . getting fat? He's tried diets, gurus, and cuddling with his military-grade Israeli guard dogs, but nothing seems to lift the cloud of emptiness and ennui. Even the sage advice of his best friend, actor and dinosaur skull collector Nicolas Cage, isn't enough to pull Carrey out of his slump.

But then Jim meets Georgie: ruthless ingénue, love of his life. And with the help of auteur screenwriter Charlie Kaufman, he has a role to play in a boundary-pushing new picture that may help him uncover a whole new side to himself--finally, his Oscar vehicle! Things are looking up!

But the universe has other plans.

Memoirs and Misinformation is a fearless semi-autobiographical novel, a deconstruction of persona. In it, Jim Carrey and Dana Vachon have fashioned a story about acting, Hollywood, agents, celebrity, privilege, friendship, romance, addiction to relevance, fear of personal erasure, our "one big soul," Canada, and a cataclysmic ending of the world--apocalypses within and without.

A raucously fun read!

Caustically hilarious satire on the surrealism that is the real Hollywood fame scene. Creatively drawn, astutely nuanced and gratuitously detailed. LOVED IT! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

A truly sublime treatise of the Soul, Psyche, and Body.

A truly sublime treatise of the Soul, Psyche, and Body. Jim is a clever man. I respect him for this bold work. Thank you Mr. Carrey. To the nay sayers, this book is a gem of knowledge, “faction”.
See the forest through the trees my friends. 🌲👁🌲

Fascinating Read

A truly amazing adventure through the brilliant mind of Jim Carrey. Not everyone will appreciate this masterpiece, but it is truly a one of a kind book from a truly one of a kind man.
