An element of drama has always attended Rupert Everett, even before he swept to fame with his outstanding performance in Another Country. He has spent his life surrounded by extraordinary people, and witnessed extraordinary events. He was in Moscow during the fall of communism, in Berlin the night the wall came down, and in downtown Manhattan on September 11th.

If you could sum up Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins in three words, what would they be?

To hear a great story read by an actor/writer who is wry, self-deprecating, snobbishly outspoken, superbly straightforward, is a total delight. I listened to Rupert Everett's book twice over - and shall do so again! Hugely recommended, HUGELY!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins?

Too many to mention - some moments are evocative, some stingingly sharp, some tear-jerkingly from the heart. What a writer he is and what a life he has lived - so far!

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

It's so out-of-the-closet that you'll feel suffocated if you're still in there!

Any additional comments?

Hurrah!
