Widely known for his roles in the films and as well as the television hit Patton Oswalt—a staple of Comedy Central—has been amusing audiences for decades. Now, with he offers a fascinating look into his most unusual, and lovable, mindscape. Oswalt combines memoir with uproarious humor, from snow forts to Dungeons & Dragons to gifts from Grandma that had to be explained. He remem­bers his teen summers spent working in a movie Cineplex and his early years doing stand-­up. Readers are also treated to several graphic elements, includ­ing a vampire tale for the rest of us and some greeting cards with a special touch.

Aiming high, Danny then began a BBC Saturday night show called DANNY BAKER AFTER ALL, following the format of David Letterman's LATE NIGHT, but the show had no real success and did not attract the audience needed to keep the show on the air. At this point he appeared in two television commercials: Daz washing powder and Mars bar chocolate, which were seen by the public as over-­exposure or trying too hard. Later, there were appearances on comedy shows like HAVE I GOT NEWS FOR YOU, SHOOTING STARS, ROOM 101, COMIC RELIEF DOES THE APPRENTICE and THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW.

Tulisa Contostavlos is one of the most talented and high-­profile recording artists working in the UK today. She has three platinum N-­Dubz albums, four MOBO awards, a groundbreaking drama series, two documentaries, a MIND award and an X Factor judge's win under her belt. Not bad for a girl who's not yet twenty-­four. But this is not just a tale of glittering success. Tulisa grew up on a tough London estate and left school with no qualifications as she struggled to cope with deep-­seated emotional problems while caring for her mother alone. She has seen first hand what drugs, alcohol, gang culture and violent relationships can do to young people, but she has come through it all to become the confident, inspiring artist she is today. After taking her little muffins Little Mix to the winning spot of the X Factor at the end of 2011, and with her long-­awaited solo album being released later this year, the future is bright for Tulisa. Told in her own words, this is her story.
