Ten years after the publication of With Nails, Richard E. Grants brilliant memoir of his years in Hollywood, Picador are proud to be publishing Wah-Wah, the very personal diaries of his debut behind the camera, as writer and director of his autobiographical movie of the same name. It is both a fascinating insight into the intrigues and agonies he encounters along the way, a deeply moving portrait of his childhood, his love affair with Swaziland, where he was born, and where he was brought up during the last throes of the British Empire. Through the mayhemnever-ending financial pressures; hostilities and finally breakdown of communication with his Producer; the nerve-racking quest to persuade the King of Swaziland to grant permission to film in his country; the assembly of a stellar cast including Gabriel Byrne, Miranda Richardson, Emily Watson, and Julie WaltersRichard E. Grant has written, with characteristic humour and charm, an extraordinarily honest and revealing account of a labour of love and the realization of a dream.
