“Barry Humphries is loved all over the world for his alter ego Dame Edna Everage and her famous catchphrase 'Hello Possums!'. But beyond his own monstrous creation, he takes a nostalgic look over his life and career, and the private life that Dame Edna overshadowed. More Please, the first of several autobiographies by Humphries, won critical praise and the J.R. Ackerley prize.
Because Barry Humphries has deliberately furnished would-be biographers with whimsical fictions and blatant mystifications, the true details of his life are among the best-kept secrets of our time. More Please, prophetically his first utterance, reveals the man behind the actor.
This best-selling book moves from suburban Australia of the 1930s, 40s and 50s to Humphries' international stardom, and his revelations and confessions will astonish his vast audience, being so wildly at odds with all that has gone before.”
