Publisher : Gallery UK (29 Sept. 2022) Language : English Hardcover : 352 pages ISBN-13 : 978-1398519473 Pre-order today for despatch on or shortly after 29th September 2022.   SIGNED & EXCLUSIVE COPY   An intimate and uplifting memoir by Richard E. Grant. Born in Swaziland in 1957, Richard E. Grant moved to the UK to pursue his acting career, and has been a fixture on our screens since his breakout role in Withnail and I in 1987. When his beloved wife Joan died in 2021 after almost forty years together, she set him a challenge: to find a pocketful of happiness in every day. The result is this book. Set between the present day and flashbacks to delightfully indiscreet diary entries recalling landmarks from his remarkable life and glittering career, this is an immensely personal and profound memoir that celebrates and cherishes life’s unexpected joys. Funny, moving and perceptive, A Pocketful of Happiness is an insight into the life of a much loved British actor.   About the Author Richard E. Grant was launched to fame in 1987 cult classic Withnail and I. Since then, he has gone on to star in a wide variety of films, including his Oscar nominated performance in Can You Ever Forgive Me? in 2018. An avid reader, in 2021 he hosted the BBC's literary travel series Write Around the World with Richard E. Grant. He married Joan Washington in 1986, and has a daughter, Olivia. You can find him on Twitter @RichardEGrant and Instagram at @richard.e.grant.

Aftershocks by Anne Fine
A family mix-up means Louie has to tag along with his engineer father and his team as they head for a routine job in the farthest flung and most neglected province of the Federation. A massive earthquake, with ensuing tsunami, devastates the entire isolated coastal region, laying bare the other-worldly manner in which the silent and strange Endlanders deal with life, death, and the hinterlands of memory and loss. Their curious and unsettling ways raise ghosts for Louie, who has recently lost his own brother. This modern fable - part ghost-story, part coming-of-age novel, and part astute social and family observation - explores the ways in which grief can affect not only individuals, but communities at large.   a weird and wonderful triumph; a challenging, powerful book – this is Fine at her very best The Times Children's Book of the Week, February 2022 -- Alex O'Connell ― The Times fast-paced and vivid -- Charlotte Cripps ― The Independent The former Children's Laureate never writes the same book twice and this is a startlingly original concept: part a dystopian story of a climate affected future, part very creepy ghost story, part coming of age, part an agonisingly accurate portrait of a family under stress and ultimately a philosophical examination of how individuals and society handle death and grief. If this sounds a lot for a relatively slim novel, be reassured that you are in the hands of an expert who writes without a wasted word... A brilliantly rewarding read. -- Joy Court ― LoveReading4Kids Anne Fine has crafted a story which is gripping, atmospheric, deeply moving and full of wisdom... I am astounded by the power of this book. -- Veronica Price ― V's View from the Bookshelves The most life-affirming book I have read regarding grief and the hold it can have over those who are left behind. -- Sarah Broadley ― My Book Corner blog A very other-worldly novel that explores ideas of loss and grief both on a macroscopic and microscopic level and the kinds of collateral damage that can arise from this within families... how well Anne realises the emotional capacity of boys and how timely that feels amidst discussions on toxic masculinity. -- Jake Hope ― reading consultant ... a gripping supernatural yet spiritual read that will have you on the edge of your seat throughout. -- Emma Kuyateh ― Primary Teacher Bookshelf
