I’LL BE DAMNED

ELLE (Canada) - - Radar -

Oh, come off it: We know the only rea­son you even own a TV is so that you can PVR Amer­ica’s number one day­time drama, and it’s mainly for Vic­tor New­man, right? Right. So nat­u­rally you’re dy­ing to read I’ll Be Damned, the au­to­bi­og­ra­phy of Eric Brae­den, the ac­tor who has been on­screen bring­ing suave-y back for 37 years and count­ing. (Fun fact: He was ini­tially booked for a three­month stint back in 1980!) And even if you don’t know the ins and outs and mirac­u­lous coma re­cov­er­ies of Genoa City, this mem­oir is (a) re­ally well writ­ten and (b) a fas­ci­nat­ing look at New­man’s life off-screen. Side note: For op­ti­mal read­ing plea­sure, have “Na­dia’s Theme” play­ing on a loop.
