Welcome to the frenetic world of Andrew Manning, celebrity agent extraordinaire…
Andrew Manning is one of celebrity’s back room boys. He’s spent twenty years repackaging and reviving celebrities whose careers have been overshadowed by scandal and is now the very special agent to a stellar list of stars.
Andy is a wealthy and powerful man. He knows where the bodies are buried. Don’t fuck with him.
Shelley Bright, chart-topping singer, fashion icon and foul-mouthed homophobe wants a divorce from her closeted gay Premier League footballer husband. She calls on Andrew to organise it. Reality TV star Joey Camp’s career goes into free-fall after he launches an expletive-laden attack on The Queen on live television: he needs Andrew to save him. And Janey Jax, international Pop Goddess…well, what she wants is so twisted and bizarre that it shocks even Andrew.
And as Andrew’s partner and lover, Johnny, begins a descent into celebrity-induced psychosis and a blackmailing paparazzi appears on the scene, things look set to become even more complicated.
“I am incredibly wealthy, I am a fixer, I am a press agent, I am a re-packager and reviver of damaged celebrity. I know where all the bodies are buried. I know who did what to whom. I am a powerful and feared man. Don’t fuck with me…”
With lashings of suicide, murder, drugs, blackmail and general bad behaviour, “I Really, Really Want It” is a dark, irreverent and no-holds barred take on celebrity-obsessed culture.
I Really, Really Want It is set in London in the world of celebrity.
“I Really Really Want It is a riotous romp through a fictional world of celebrity, it is both hilarious and at times desperately sad. ‘I Really Really Want’ to read a sequel.”
