Don't You Know Who I Am?

Insider Diaries of Fame, Power and Naked Ambition



The No.1 bestseller thatlifts the lid on the world of celebrity - as Piers tries to become one himself...

'They say you can always remember where you where when pivotal moments happen, such as losing your virginity or Elvis dying. Let me add another to the list: the moment I sang a duet to the the "Macarena" with Timmy Mallett, live to millions of people...'

Sacked from his high-profile job as a national newspaper editor, Piers Morgan dived helplessly into the world of celebrity. But even twenty years of commenting on the lives of the rich and famous couldn't prepare him for the extraordinary world he uncovered...

A riveting, scandelous and brutally honest account of one man's quest for celebrity, Don't You Know Who I Am? lifts the lid on the egos and outrageous behaviour of everyone from Paris Hilton to Cherie Blair, Kate Moss to the legend that is the Hoff.

Praise for Don't You Know Who I Am?

Every page is gold

Heat

A typically ribald account of life both making the news and reporting it, as wildly implausible and riotously entertaining as the man himself

GQ

He is a very funny writer

Lynn Barber, Daily Telegraph

Enjoyably revelatory and very good fun

Observer

An illuminating, very readable study of the essentially hapless, frequently humiliating and often hilarious nature of media stardom today

Evening Standard

A thoroughly enjoyable read

Sun

Reading this book really is like peering into Morgan's head. But it's a fascinating head - its contents are clever and silly, sharp and gullible, occasionally incredibly funny. I'd say he has another bestseller on his hands.
