This review is from: Falling and Laughing: The Restoration of Edwyn Collins (Hardcover)I cannot praise this book highly enough. A moving, funny and searingly honest account of the time immediately before and many months after Edwyn's stroke. I was moved to tears and, by turns, laughing out loud as Grace Maxwell recounts the trials, tribulations and successes that occurred during this most difficult of times.
If you've ever spent extended periods in hospitals and treatment centres this will strike a chord with you and if you haven't prepare to have your eyes opened.
You don't have to be an Edwyn Collins or Orange Juice fan to find a connection to this book, just a big heart and a ready wit will suffice. I couldn't put it down from the moment I opened it. Fantastic, just fantastic, please buy it now.
