Neil Patrick Harris chooses YOU to star in his memoir
Neil Patrick Harris has announced his autobiography and it's pretty brilliant. He's writing a "choose your own" style book to take readers through his life story.
Fans of Emmy award-winning actor and part-time magician Neil Patrick Harris, known as N.P.H. for short, will soon be able to explore his story in his upcoming memoir, titled "Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography."
Like the popular "Choose Your Own Adventure" and "Fighting Fantasy" children's series, this book also gives you the option of where to take the story next.
"In this revolutionary, Joycean experiment in light celebrity narrative, actor/personality/carbon-based life-form Neil Patrick Harris lets you, the reader, live his life," the book's description reads. "You will be born in New Mexico. You will get your big break at an acting camp. You will get into a bizarre confrontation outside a nightclub with actor Scott Caan.
"Even better, at each critical juncture of your life you will choose how to proceed. You will decide whether to try out for Doogie Howser, M.D. You will decide whether to spend years struggling with your sexuality. You will decide what kind of caviar you want to eat on board Elton John's yacht."
It also offers this lighthearted warning, "Choose correctly and you'll find fame, fortune, and true love. Choose incorrectly and you'll find misery, heartbreak, and a guest stint on 'Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.'
"All this, plus magic tricks, cocktail recipes, embarrassing pictures from your time as a child actor, and even a closing song."
The book is set to be released on October 14 and is available to preorder now.
