What to expect
Get to know a national icon in Eddie Izzard’s hilarious and dazzling autobiography
‘Comic genius . . . Entertainment incarnate’ Telegraph
Star of stage and screen. Tireless supporter of charity. Marathon runner. Political campaigner.
Fashion icon. Human.
There is no one quite like Eddie Izzard. This is the story of how she broke through.
Her relentless optimism has led her to always do things her own way, even if it didn’t work the first time, and her incredible self-belief has pushed her to keep on trying, even if it didn’t work the second or third time either.
Whether she was putting on teddy bear shows on boarding school beds or swordfighting on the streets of London, Eddie never stopped trying to achieve her dreams of becoming a performer.
Brimming with her distinctively surreal humour and disarming candour, Believe Me tells the story of a person who never took no for an answer.
‘This book is a raw, honest exploration of what it means to live your truth, to be unapologetically ambitious. It’s about being brave. And hilarious’ Chelsea Handler

True Izzardians are every bit as committed in their fandom as Star Trek or Dr Who fansGuardian
Sheer Comic Genius. His humour reflects the scattershot lunacy of Monty Python, but with a sophisticated silliness that is entirely his own. He is the most brilliant stand-up comedian of his generationNew York Times
