9780099552987: Straight Up: The Autobiography

In a notoriously difficult industry, Danny Dyer has carved out a niche that has seen him become one of the most recognizable, distinctive, and popular actors of his generation. But it hasn't all been a walk in the park. Growing up in Canning Town, East London, through the eighties, was no picnic. He had trouble at home and more at school. It wasn't until he started acting, and discovered a talent for it, that he realized there was a way out and up. He found early success in Prime Suspect and stealing the show in the cult film Human Traffic. But then, inevitably, the ups were followed by the downs and he found himself shut outside of an industry that didn't understand him; that heard his cockney accent before bothering with his talent. But the more he was rejected, the harder his will became, and the greater the drive to overcome. This is a fascinating, illuminating story of a cockney geezer made good. Funny, honest, intimate, and choc-a-bloc full of Danny's antics and anecdotes, this memoir tears it up proper nice and delivers on every page.
