Jim Carrey to Publish Novel with Knopf
Jim Carrey has written a novel, MEMOIRS AND MISINFORMATION, that will be published by Alfred A. Knopf in May 2020. Carrey wrote the book in collaboration with novelist Dana Vachon. Knopf acquired world rights from David Kuhn at Aevitas Creative Management. The novel will be published by Knopf in hardcover and eBook, and by Penguin Random House Audio, on May 5, 2020.
MEMOIRS AND MISINFORMATION is a fearless and semi-autobiographical deconstruction of persona. Carrey and Vachon have fashioned a narrative about acting, Hollywood, agents, celebrity, privilege, friendship, loneliness, romance, addiction to relevance, fear of personal erasure, growing up in Canada, and a cataclysmic ending of the world — apocalypses within and without.
“Jim Carrey has written a novel that is more revealing about his life than any memoir could possibly be,” said Sonny Mehta, Editor in Chief of Knopf. “It is a perceptive and highly entertaining book about the arc of fame, as well as a look inside the mind of an artist, the life that shaped him, and the world he inhabits.”
“None of this is real and all of it is true,” said Mr. Carrey.
Mr. Carrey will be making national media appearances, as well as touring, in support of the book.
