Publisher's Summary

If I'm going to tell the story of a life, my life, then I need to tell it warts and all. If the tale is too saccharine sweet then what can the reader take away from it? What do they learn about you? I've written everything down. The shit, the death, fun, naughtiness, addiction, laughter, laughter, laughter, some tears and lots of love and happiness. That ,to me, is a better reflection of a human's life.
Nick's family life was difficult, blighted by alcoholism, illness and sudden misfortune, meaning they lost everything overnight. He left school early and drifted from job to job, dogged by his own personal demons. It's something of a miracle that Nick survived and even more that he would achieve such success with his writing, acting and comedy.
In Truths, Half Truths and Little White Lies, Nick paints a brilliantly funny, moving and brutally candid portrait of childhood, adolescence and eventual success.

An amazing book that delves into the struggles Nick Frost went through in his life and is a tale of perseverance and friendship. The book is made all the better by Nick Frost reading it and at points you can hear the emotion in his voice, definetly worth a listen, whether or not you are fan.

Heartwarming, candid, interesting and funny..

I didn't realise this book existed, but I'm glad I found it. Nick Frost is a great writer and narrator, I polished this audiobook off in two days so excited was I too hear more and more of his story.

From Essex, to Israel, to London to showbiz via much fun and heartbreak, much man-love for his Simon Peggy, drink and mind altering substances. Really well spoken and written, interesting even if you know little about him.
