Matthew Perry was a Canadian American actor, executive producer, and comedian.
Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing is a raw, unflinching
memoir that took courage to write. As it turns out, Matthew Perry
has a lot of courage. He takes us through his addiction, his
illness and his paralyzing loneliness. Somehow, during the course
of his life, Matthew was able to turn his pain into comedic joy for
others, but, he tells us, it was at a cost. Matthew takes us
through his "hell" but doesn't wallow. Ultimately, this book is
filled with hope for the future. If you want to know about who
Matthew Perry is, stay away from the rags and read this.
