Probably of a 2 star in terms of enjoyment From the first chapter which I had a hard time reading I knew it wasn t for me I love Zawe Ashton from Fresh Meat to her episode in Misfits Not Safe for Work and her stellar performance in Betrayal I thought this would be a funnish light read about her experiences in all those But it s written in one tone and reads as self pity which had me uestioning is someone forcing her to act It s painful for her from age 6 all the way through to end where she tells the producer she isn t acting any The industry is sexist racist and treats people like things and she has every right to not like it I just didn t want to read a book about much she didn t want to do the thing that I admire her for

??t lose herself completelyIn Character Breakdown Zawe scrolls through a version of her life Or is it a version of her art Or something in between In it she encounters glamour horror absurdity and uestions like is a life spent on performance than reality any life at all. The method style that Zawe choose to use alternating chapters between prose and script was a really uniue way to tell her story It made the book carry real emotion as it felt like watching it as a play Thank you for sharing your story with us around race sexism within your industry grief and many It also switches between fiction and non fiction which I found a little jarring but i m sure some people would really enjoy It is definitely a great read if you as missing theatre productions or any kind of fringe performance
