    3. This book was unexpectedly endearing Though some of the lingo was above my head being an American reader of a later time , I was able to get the jist of it I am not always a big fan of these particular subject matters, but Everett makes the characters sympathetic through their faults, touches on subjects which supply sincere depth and pathos, and seems to leave the overall impression that the heroes of the story, at least, did not so much choose this life as fell into it and thus those of us, li [...]

    4. The first book I ve read that can be accurately called a catty gay picaresque Not sure how many of those the world needs, to be honest, but I wanted something fluffy to balance the textbooks, and Rupert Everett s novel fit the bill Everett, you should know, is an excellent British actor who never quite received the fame and career he deserved probably because he is a proudly gay man, and that still scares unenlightened people The book s protagonist, Rhys, known also as Dorhys, Dorita and Lady Be [...]

    5. Fiction books written by actors and actresses always bemuse me It s like watching an elephant tap dance The performance doesn t have to be particularly good you re just amazed that it s done at all The young Rhys Waveral isn t your average little boy From the very beginning, he knew he wanted to be an actress That s right, ACTRESS There were just a couple of things in the way From these embarrassing beginnings, we witness a character s determination to seize life by the ba um, horns He drinks, t [...]

    6. Divided into three acts like a stage play, Hello Darling, Are You Working is liberally and wonderfully illustrated by Frances Crichton Stuart The pictures are like the black and white, pen and ink drawings found in a children s storybook.Although Rhys the main character is supposed to be a gay man, there is very little in the book to suggest this, which is one reason I found the book of no significance to me as a reader or to gay literature in general There are so much hijinks going on that the [...]

    7. This book follows Rhys Waveral, a k a Dorhys, Dorita, Wavy, Rhyssie, Lancelot, and Keith depending on what drugs his on, or what part he s playing either in life or acting.Rhys gets in trouble when the stock market crashes in 1987, thus leaving him with an exorbitant debt at the Hotel Leicester in Paris Strip of all his assets, Rhys has only one thing to sell himself.Thus the farce is set that will transpire in Tangier, Morocco at the annual costume ball given to all the rich Brit ex pats.The bo [...]

    8. Delighful One suspects some of these adventures are drawn from Rupert Everett s life I ve re read this book countless times It s the story of a young English boy who would rather play dress up than grow up, so he becomes an actor A fortuitous meeting in a bathroom with his soon to be future agent lands him a recurring role on an American sitcom, and it s off to the races.Along the way, he dabbles in Homosex, hetrosex, drugs, marriage, costume parties, debt, jewels, drugs, face creams, and partie [...]

    9. Darling Are You Working is Rupert Everett s entertaining novelization of his years working as a male hustler in England and America The cast of characters is a bright melange of drag queens, speed freaks, and crusty cultural dons who act as foils Worth it if just for the chapter where the Everett character s military dad accidentally takes acid and makes out with a transvestite Frothy, nonsense fun

    10. This definitely felt like a book that was published because of the author s name, not because it was a good story It was all over the place, with flashbacks and change of protagonist for bits and pieces, ludicrous characters that I couldn t keep apart for the life of me, persistent cases of forgetting the show, don t tell rule and a general feeling of bad story, why am I still reading this Rupert Everett is a good actor, but he should stop publishing books.

    11. Interesting read the characters are sketched out beautifully, but I just didn t enjoy their story very much But I definitely appreciated Everett s use of language I will save this one to read again later and see if I appreciate the story when in a different frame of mind.

    12. Picture a very long episode of Ab Fab written by the playwright Joe Orton Loot and you ve got Rupert Everett s debut novel The story is filled with cinematic and visual humor that I think would ve lent itself better to a movie than it does to a novel.

    13. I liked Rupert Everett s book I was surprised This is like saddling right up next to the movie star and finding out what if feels like to be him and know what his life is like The story was simple and not super original but I think he s a good writer This is a quick fun summer read.

    14. Despite his undeniable talent as an actor, Everett is probably an even talented writer Laugh out loud funny, this books is a thinly veiled autobiography, with plenty added for comic effect of course I wish he would write of this kind of novel.

    15. Although I did not like Everett s autobiography, I do like him as an actor and his writing was witty and original So I will give this fictional book a try Perhaps he should stick to fiction rather than talking about himself.

    16. Have you ever read a book in which you were sure it was getting ready to be very interesting This is what it is like to read Hello Darling, Are you Working I loved the little sketches and the tongue in cheek intros to each chapter but in the end I was left wanting.

    18. Good fun, especially the very first chapter which made me laugh so hard I forgave the rest of the book for being a little bit self indulgent and precious.
