This is Your Life

John O'Farrell

Extract

Over the years I have read about bogus professionals, phoney aristocrats, refugees claiming to be Russian princesses, criminals impersonating police officers. It occurred to me that I had become the show business equivalent - I was a bogus celebrity. My name was forged, I had risen without trace, I was a nobody-somebody, a plastic VIP.
