My Life As Me

A Memoir


Formats & editions


Described by Barry Humphries as a 'cubist self-portrait', My Life as Me revisits his childhood, his adolescence, his complicated relationship with Australia, and his adventures of the heart and of the stage. In this heady memoir, his various distractions – painting, travel, collecting, marriage and divorce – are explored, if not explained.A master of comic writing, Barry tells us of his privileged youth in suburban Melbourne and, with a disarming candour that he already regrets, describes his hectic artistic and romantic career in Australia, England and America. There are also hilarious glimpses of his life as the creator of Sir Les Patterson, Sandy Stone, Dame Edna Everage – and himself.
