What the critics say

So relentless in its depiction of his endless debauch that readers might need their own mental detox. It is, however, elevated by Moby's impressively vivid turn of phrase and hispost-recovery willingness to show himself in the harshest of lights as he slides from life and soul to black hole. The voice of a degeneration, this book is compelling testimony from someone who, finally, knows exactly who he is. Sunday Times Often squawk-out-loud funny and unexpectedly lyrical in places [ ... ] Unsurprisingly, this morality tale, in which fame and money fix nothing and, indeed, make a lot of things worse, all ends in AA: you could read these memoirs as part of the 12-step amends making process. Observer As the young Moby falls in love with music, his older self is falling apart [ ... ] He craved fame, but when he got it, it didn't make him happy. It's a tale as old as the music industry. The Times ('Best Books of the Year So Far') A brutally honest and self-aware life story that lays bare the dark side of fame. The Express Somehow this chronicle of a long, dark night of the soul also involves funny stories involving Trump, Putin, and a truly baffling array of degenerates. Stephen Colbert Can't put it down. Honest, heartbreaking and really funny. Adam McKay, filmmaker Then It Fell Apart reveals Moby to be a compelling storyteller, wholly likeable, self-depreciating, funny and someone who wholeheartedly holds himself responsible for the situations he finds himself in. The beautiful but banal celebrity world has rarely been so honestly portrayed. Another triumph. Classic Pop 5***** In the hands of a less engaging writer, such travails might have turned into a litany of failures that disconnected a reader's full attention. Moby, however, peppers the details with skyscraper height name-dropping and droll anecdotes that regularly turns a desperately unhappy memoir into a pick-me-up holiday read.
