Editorial Reviews

Review

‘Fascinating, funny and heart wrenching. Ultimately uplifting because it’s a beautiful and honest celebration of a deep, deep love’

  -- Dame Julie Walters

‘A gorgeously candid account of acting and showbusiness. And an intimate and heartfelt story of love, loss and a life spent together. I cannot remember being so moved by a book.’ -- Dolly Alderton

‘An emotional rollercoaster – profoundly moving and wonderfully entertaining. A brilliant memoir about living, loving and losing.’ -- Bernardine Evaristo

‘One of the bravest, strongest, funniest memoirs I’ve ever read’  -- Bonnie Garmus, bestselling author of Lessons in Chemistry

‘A deeply moving memoir from one of our greatest actors’  -- David Walliams

'My friend has written a most remarkable book. Love, loss and the story of an extraordinary marriage. Heartbreaking and uplifting in its honesty' -- Rob Brydon

'A very special, profoundly affecting read. 5 stars'  -- Gyles Brandreth

'What a book! To put it one way, you could describe the lovely Richard E. Grant's 
A Pocketful of Happiness as love, death, and showbiz stories - and while accurate, that would be to miss out both its fierceness and tenderness.' -- Nigella Lawson

A Pocketful of Happiness documents the head and heart exploding overwhelm of grief … brutal but necessary’  — Sunday Times

‘Grant’s profoundly moving book, part love letter to his beloved wife, part gossipy memoir about his life and times, will resonate with anyone who ever lost a loved one’  —
Daily Express

‘Richard E. Grant’s heartbreaking memoir recalls a long, happy marriage – and leaves us shattered for his loss’ —
The Spectator

‘A touching account’  —
The Observer

‘Incredibly moving’  —
Daily Telegraph

5.0 out of 5 stars A Cinematic Ode to Grief and Joy
By Noble Smith on October 31, 2022
I have been a huge fan of Richard E. Grant since I saw his film Withnail and I 35 years ago. He should have won an Academy award for this brilliant role—but he wasn’t even nominated! His new memoir is by turns a breezy ride through the looking glass world of showbiz, and a grim Dante’s Hell journey in the realm of the terminally ill. In the end, A Pocketful of Happiness is a testament to the little joys in life and how important it is to share those with the people whom you love. (I ordered this from Blackwell’s Books online and got an autographed copy shipped to the US for 20 bucks.)
