"Some BIG news. Join me on my book tour this November! Tickets on sale now (link in bio). Looking forward to seeing you and sharing stories from FRIENDS, LOVERS, AND THE BIG TERRIBLE THING."

As per Macmillan publishers, Perry’s memoir takes the readers on his journey from childhood ambition, fame, addiction, and finally recovery in the aftermath of a life-threatening health scare.

In his memoir, Perry also describes the family that raised and left him to his own devices, following which the desire for recognition drove him to fame. He also details the peace he has found in sobriety and how he feels about the sitcom Friends, sharing stories about his castmates and other stars he met along the way.

On its website, Macmillan describes the book by stating:

“Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing is an unforgettable memoir that is both intimate and eye-opening—as well as a hand extended to anyone struggling with sobriety. Unflinchingly honest, moving, and uproariously funny, this is the book fans have been waiting for.”
