Product description

Review

One might think that this is a selfish attempt to gain fame and fortune at the expense of his son. This is not the case. Eclipsed is written with more brutal honesty and self-deprecating humour than can be expected from anyone with selfish intentions.

Dominic Holland bravely exposes his hopes and dissappointments, his talents and his failties in a story which is ultimately redemptive in its fearless honesty and open-hearted spirit. Eclipsed is a bitter-sweet tale of great liveliness and warmth; above all, it is profoundly human.

Dominic Holland does not claim superior genes, unique talent or fate for his son Tom, but gives credit to his hard work, application and a high degree of talent. This is a truly remarkable, balanced perspective given the dizzy heights to which Tom's career has already achieved and which so far have eluded his old man.

 

About the Author

Dominic Holland is an award winning stand-up comedian and broadcaster. He has made countless television appearances as well as four BBC Radio 4 series. He continues to tour the UK and recently took his sixth critically acclaimed one-man show to the Edinburgh Festival. He has written for most national newspapers in the United kingdom and has published four novels. Eclipsed is his first non-fiction book. He has written many screenplays, all of which are at various stages of not being made. He is married to Nikki and they have four boys and a dog. They live in London in a house that is messier than they would like and would probably worth much more if they didn't have four boys and a dog.
