I started reading Craig Ferguson's American On Purpose last night. I've only read the first few chapters but so far it's very interesting. He definitely had a rough childhood but the book doesn't read as a woe-is-me memoir with the humour he injects into it. I don't think I'd be able to find humour in looking back at some of the situations he describes, but I suppose he had to. He never seems bleak or regretful but one can definitely see how he stumbled into drugs and alcohol. It reads very well and I probably would have stayed up to finish the whole thing in one go if I didn't have to get up early this morning.
I also bought Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk, which will be next after I finish Craig's book.
