‘Believe Me’ by Eddie Izzard

In this autobiography, Eddie Izzard takes the readers through many phases of his fascinating and inspiring personal life.

From his birth in Yemen before its independence from Britain, to the adventures he recalls of Northern Ireland, Wales and England, then to other places in Europe and America.

A memoir of love, death and jazz chickens, Eddie recounts life events that shaped who he is, and tells of how losing his mother at an early age made him dream of achieving the impossible, which he did by becoming a comedy phenomenon, an advocate of clothing rights and what he terms a “British European.”
