In this book Richard Ayoade — actor, writer, director, and amateur dentist — reflects on his cinematic legacy as only he can: in conversation with himself. Over ten brilliantly insightful and often erotic interviews, Ayoade examines Ayoade fully and without mercy, leading a breathless investigation into this once-in-a-generation visionary. They have called their book Ayoade on Ayoade: A Cinematic Odyssey. Take the journey, and your life will never be the same again.
'Very, very funny . . . Not only a must for fans of Ayoade's style of comedy but of cinema, too. You won't read anything like it this year, or ever.'
Richard Ayoade takes celebrity introspection to the next level with a wickedly po-faced paean to his process ... required reading for anyone even thinking about writing a memoir.
A brilliantly sustained takedown of anyone who has ever written a self-indulgent book about their own careers.
(Ayoade's) eccentric parody of pretentious film tomes, full of posturing, absurdity and brutally passive-aggressive swipes at his own ego is a clear reflection of his very distinctive wit.
