Думаю, автобиография Джонни достойна отдельной темы.
Сюда можно помещать новости с автограф-сессий, ссылки на места, где ее можно приобрести, отзывы и так далее.

Также сюда можно и нужно тащить спойлеры, отрывки и все, что найдется
Например, на фсу сейчас активно обсуждают эпизод о ФГП-2004. Джонни отобрался, но не поехал из-за травмы. В книге он рассказал, как такое случилось - на банкете российского этапа Джонни хватил лишнего и предложил Лайсачеку посоревноваться в выполнении стойки на руках. Они это сделали, Джонни неудачно вышел из стойки, растянул связки - и до свиданья, ФГП.

At a party following Cup of Russia, a tipsy Johnny spotted Evan sitting in a corner, and challenged him to a handstand contest. They adjourned to a hallway upstairs, where Johnny was "losing terribly" and then "came down wrong" on the toe of his "very pointy gray leather boots," spraining his ankle. There went the GPF.

комменты

First of all, I admit that I'm a huge fan of Johnny's and have been since I first heard of him while living in Delaware back in 2005 or so. I cried like a baby watching his long skate at the Olympics, and cut out a newspaper pic of him in his final pose at the end of that program because it both energized me and broke my heart at the same time. So I'm not exactly unbiased, but if you're interested in reading the book, you're probably not either.

What shines through for me in this book is someone who is at peace with himself and who knows himself to his core. It hasn't been easy to be Johnny Weir, and if you're a fan you already know that. But Johnny's combination of incredible artistry with steel toughness is rare and unusual in this world, and for me it keeps me coming back for more. Part of me hopes that he will do something outrageous and unexpected like skate for Russia in the next Winter Olympics, just as a final "kiss my ass" to the US Skating Federation, which has treated him so shamefully, but as long as Johnny is at peace with himself, I suppose it doesn't really matter. That long program, Fallen Angel, stands on its own as the most remarkable performance on ice that I've ever seen. The book is entertaining, fascinating, well written, and never boring- just like Johnny. As the mom of 3 very individual children myself, I applaud his parents for never stifling Johnny and raising such a remarkable person. I will keep watching - his TV show, his public appearances, any more writing he might do, and one can only hope, more performances on the ice. Bravo!

This is the autobiography of figure skater Johnny Weir. Or, as he calls it, his 'quarter century memoir.' People tend to have very strong opinions on Johnny, and I'm no exception. I adore him. Far from being the attention whore drama queen (well okay, he has bits of that in him but really, only bits) that the media would have you believe he is, he is actually articulate, thoughtful, witty, and honest. This all comes through in the book, especially the honesty. Everyone who knew about this book expected him to tear into the skating world and he certainly doesn't sugar coat the rigidity, bias, and corruption of the USFSA. Some of the stories he tells say a lot about just what counts when it comes to scoring in the figure skating world. Hint: it's not always all about how well you skate. Just as importantly, Johnny pulls absolutely no punches when talking about his own behavior. He had one year especially in which he was a complete nightmare and he completely owns up to it, acknowledging when his own immaturity was his undoing, and how difficult a road he had coming back from that. Much has been made of his 'coming out' in the book, though Johnny himself says he doesn't remember ever being in the closet. To my mind, he's right. He's never pretended to be anything other than who he is, and he didn't need to define himself to the world via a cover story in the Advocate...Johnny's always known exactly who he is. And he doesn't particularly care what anyone thinks of that. It's a wonderful read and I hope that anyone who is dubious about Johnny or knows him only through the insulting lens of mainstream media will pick up this book and give it a read with an open mind.


I have been a figure skating fan for over 20 years and in recent year Johnny Weir has been my favorite skater. I love how much personality he has and how is is always himself. I found the book very enlightening as to what makes Johnny, well Johnny. I have to say that it was much more serious than I had anticipated, but that's not a bad thing. There are funny parts, but you can tell that he takes his skating and artistry very seriously. I laugh, I cried, I loved it and am rereading it again!
