Friends, lovers, and the big terrible thing : a memoir / Matthew Perry ; [foreword by Lisa Kudrow].

Perry, Matthew, 1969-2023 (author.). Kudrow, Lisa, (writer of foreword.).


Perry takes readers behind the scenes of the sitcom Friends-- and into his struggles with addiction. Vividly detailing his lifelong battle with alcoholism and drugs, he examines what fueled it despite seemingly having it all: the desire for recognition that drove him, the void inside him that could not be filled, and the peace he's found in sobriety. -- adapted from back cover.
