Coreyography: A Memoir
- A deeply personal and revealing memoir and Hollywood-survival story by The Lost Boys and Stand By Me star
Lovable child star by age ten, international teen idol by fifteen, and to this day a perennial pop-culture staple, Corey Feldman is just as famous for his off-screen exploits as for his roles in the classic films Gremlins, The Goonies and Stand by Me. He's been linked to a slew of Hollywood starlets, shared a highly publicized friendship with Michael Jackson, and with his frequent costar Corey Haim enjoyed immeasurable success as one half of the popular duo "The Two Coreys."
Much more than the typical celebrity memoir, Corey has revealed the truth about what his life was like behind the scenes: His is a past that included physical, drug, and sexual abuse, a dysfunctional family from which he was emancipated at age fifteen, three high-profile arrests for drug possession, and a nine-month stint in rehab.
While Corey has managed to overcome the traps that ensnared so many other entertainers—he's still acting, is a touring musician, and proud father—many of those closest to him haven't been so lucky. In the span of one year, he mourned the passing of seven friends and family members, including Corey Haim and Michael Jackson. In the wake of those tragedies, he's spoken publicly about the dark side of fame, lobbied for legislation affording greater protections for children in the entertainment industry, and lifted the lid off of what he calls Hollywood's biggest secret.
Coreyography is his surprising account of survival and redemption.
