"A satirical adventure in which Carrey plumbs the chasms of
Hollywood's self-obsessed culture."
-Dave Itzkoff, The New York Times
"A simultaneously baffling and mesmerizing examination of Carrey's psyche . . . a reimagining of the traditional Hollywood tell-all."
-Thomas Floyd, The Washington Post
"Memoirs and Misinformation is, like the twisted political drawings Carrey posts on Twitter, entirely its own thing. A satire of Hollywood's self-absorption coinciding with the end of the planet, none of it is real ... except when it is . . . A wholly strange work of autofiction, laden with symbolism and metaphor, sometimes beautiful, sometimes tragic."
-Glenn Whipp, Los Angeles Times
"An engaging, fun tale that plays with the public perceptions of celebrities, questions our compulsive need to view, and contains a gloriously off-the-wall conclusion."
-Alexander Moran, Booklist
"Not a typical tell-all. . . . blends moving autobiography, name-droppish tabloid fodder, science-fiction, and anti-capitalist screed."
"A mad fever dream. . . Carrey and his collaborator Vachon pull out all the stops as their protagonist Jim Carrey careens from midlife blues through love and career complications toward the apocalypse . . . gems of comic fantasy and the nuggets of memoir gold."
