No, Shaun Micallef has NOT written an autobiography or memoir although I reckon his would be a rather fascinating read in comparison to the truly mind-boggling biographies that line the “me, me, me” shelf at bookstores these days. Think Fierce by Kelly Osbourne. Really? Or Learning to Fly by Victoria Beckham. Reeeally? Micallef has taken the road less traveled by commercially successful television personalities (Full Frontal, The Micallef Program(me), Newstopia and Talkin’ ‘Bout Your Generation) and written Preincarnate, a fictional novel about a fast-paced adventure through time. The jury is still out but hey anything to see the man’s rubber face and quick wit reminiscent of Peter Cook, whom he aptly played in Good Evening: The Sketches of Peter Cook and Dudley Moore on stage earlier this year.
