This book is divided into eleven main chapters, with mini-chapters “interludes” between each main chapter, and a total of about 250 pages. At the end is a photo section with 44 individual photos of Perry and her family and friends. Many of these images contain funny/clever captions.
The book opens with a foreword from Friends co-star Lisa Kudrow, in which she shares a few kind words about Perry. The following is a prologue in which Perry covers the remarkable and painful series of events that led to her colon bursting and leaving him in a coma for two weeks. This is a very dramatic way to start the book, as at one point Perry had a 2% chance of surviving the night. He tells this story with his trademark sense of sarcasm and dark humor that fans have come to expect from him.
In the first few chapters, Perry jumps back and forth in time as she talks about his current life and also reveals some details about her childhood and his family. He talks about his father leaving him when he was a baby, learning to play tennis, drinking as a teenager, and his early acting aspirations. There are brief “interludes” between each chapter, which are usually more humorous short stories about random events in Perry’s life, while the rest of the book follows more of a timeline.
Perry gets caught up in his fear of failure and sabotages his relationships. He talks about loneliness and a decades-long ongoing battle with drug and alcohol addiction. Even in his most successful moments, he was repeatedly plagued by fears and addictions that ultimately made it difficult for him to be happy.
Overall I enjoyed reading this book. Perry capitalizes on his dry, sarcastic humor throughout the book, though he does spend a good portion of the book discussing serious and painful topics. He tells the story of himself with humility, wit, honesty, and a sense of gratitude for surviving a few close encounters. Hopefully his story will help inspire others who are also struggling with addiction.
Friends Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing is an unforgettable memory that is both intimate and revealing, and an outstretched hand for anyone struggling with sobriety. Blatantly honest, moving and hilarious, this is the book fans have been waiting for.
