About Entertainers and the Rich & Famous

Celebrity memoirs, or the stories that document the lives of entertainers and the rich and famous, invite interested readers into the minds of our most celebrated people. In this eclectic genre, Michelle Obama is shelved alongside Russell Brand, and Bethenny Frankel sits beside Oprah.

Arguably, celebrity memoirs have existed for centuries since Julius Caesar wrote his commentary on the Gallic Wars. Now, entertainers and the rich and famous tell their stories in flashy, detail-heavy memoirs, while those close to celebrities offer tell-all exclusives aimed to shock.

Shonda Rhimes, Elton John, Kathie Lee Gifford, and Dolly Parton have all penned memoirs. Celebrity chefs, YouTube stars, B-list actors, reality TV stars, musicians, politicians, and friends of the rich and famous have also left their mark on the genre, as have biographers and ghostwriters. Topics often include their rise to fame, their struggles with addiction or celebrity, and the sides of life that make them just like the ordinary reader. In audiobook format, they frequently lend their own voices to narrate.

These celebrity writers introduce us to what it means to be famous while demonstrating that they live a normal life away from the paparazzi, too. Learn all you can about your favorite celebrity with one of these audiobooks on entertainers and the rich and famous.
