內容簡介


美國好萊塢版《逆轉人生》電影原著,真實故事改編!

Sellou來自社會最低層,是個失業的黑人移民,在不甚光彩的環境中長大,剛被假釋出獄,沒錢沒身分;Pozzo則是來自上流社會的有錢人,因為意外而癱瘓,不缺錢的他喜歡的東西都可以輕鬆到手,但生活卻無法自理。

Pozzo巧合下雇用了Sellou來照顧自己,這場巧合的相遇,讓社會背景天差地別的兩人因此發展出一段預料之外的友誼,改變了他們的一生。

故事簡單卻感動了無數讀者,2011年首次由法國導演Olivier Nakache和Eric Toledano翻拍成電影,不僅獲得觀眾好評,也獲得了許多獎項,2017年由《藥命效應》、《分歧者》導演Neil Burger翻拍美國老萊塢版,由Bryan Cranston、Kevin Hart等知名演員主演。

The acclaimed true story of an aristocrat, a con man, and the friendship that transformed them both, now the inspiration for a major motion picture starring Kevin Hart, Bryan Cranston, and Nicole Kidman.

Abdel Sellou and Philippe Pozzo di Borgo were two people marginalized by society: Sellou a wisecracking, unemployed immigrant, just out on parole; Pozzo a man born to wealth and privilege, recently paralyzed from the neck down after a paragliding accident. How they came to help each other, and the unlikely friendship that became a lifeline for them both, is an uplifting story that's now been told and retold around the world.

In this bestselling memoir, Sellou shows us the irreverent, real-life character behind Kevin Hart's smiling face. The book takes us from Sellou's childhood spent stealing candy from the local grocery store to his career as a pickpocket and scam artist, to his unexpected employment as a companion for a quadriplegic. Sellou tells his story with a stunning amount of talent, humor, style, and--though he denies that he has any--humility.
