Waterstones Says

The acclaimed actor and noted trans activist reflects on gender, mental health, Hollywood and much more in this thoughtful, passionate memoir.

Before the world premiere of Juno Elliot Page was on the edge of self-discovery. But with Juno's massive success and his dreams coming true, Elliot found himself trapped by the spotlight and the pressure to perform was suffocating him. Until enough was enough. From chasing down secret love affairs to battling body image and working through his difficult childhood, Pageboy is a beautiful, intimate book about searching for ourselves and our place in the world.

MEDIA REVIEWS

It doesn't feel like the smoothed-over result of cautious editing, "as told to" anyone but Page himself. Such rawness, as a document of his life story, only makes it all the more singular. - Daily Telegraph

Brutally honest ... Powerful. - New York Times Book Review

Vivid… Moving… Juicy - NPR

At its heart [Pageboy] is the story of his transitioning.... He writes, rather beautifully, about gender dysphoria, top surgery and finally finding himself. But the book is so much more than a tale of transition. Pageboy is a modern-day Hollywood Babylon, written by a sensitive soul. - Guardian

Page's compassion-inducing account feels vital ... Heartfelt and courageous in its honesty. - i Newspaper
