Product Description

Review

'Our Time of Day captures the exhaustion, the confusion, the unpreparedness of learning to love someone you have loved already; the same man, but with parts missing, parts changed... There are also funny anecdotes about those picky traits that cause repetitive arguments, and confessions that many are not prepared to make. Kika divulges an honesty that is impressionable - she is not self-pitying, or saintly, but really just comes across as human.' --The Lancet Neurology

Honest and moving... This engaging and thought-provoking book serves to remind practitioners of the enormous strain families come under caring for their relatives. The compassion the family shows for one another in these circumstances is heartwarming. Kika aimed to give comfort to families going through similar experiences: this she does with her accessible and direct writing style. --The Psychologist

'[A] great addition to the brain injury literature ... a fitting homage to a remarkable man and Kika, his wife, companion and champion.' --Ava Easton, Encephalitis Society

About the Author

Kika Markham s life in the theatre began playing Viola in a young all-star cast in a modern-dress adaptation of Twelfth Night at the Royal Court. Two of her most treasured stage peformances are the West End production of Noel Coward s Song at Twilight, not only because she co-starred with her real-life husband, Corin Redgrave, but she was also nominated for an Olivier Award for Best Supporting Actress; and Homebody/Kabul by Tony Kushner at The Young Vic for which she was Nominated for What s On Stage Best Solo Performance. More recent theatre includes The Last Yankee at The Print Room, On The Record at the Arcola, Tribes at the Royal Court, and Women, Power and Politics at Tricycle Theatre. Her television credits include Lois in Mr Selfridge, Secret State, New Tricks, Call the Midwife and Spooks, and playing Thatcher in The Line of Beauty. One of Kika s more memorable television projects was Dennis Potter s Double Dare. Few people know this was actually written around an evening spent with Kika after Potter had seen the iconic Cornetto Gondola commercial. She also acted with Harold Pinter in his television play The Basement. In film, Kika has worked mostly in France, with directors Jacques Rivette, Arnaud Deplechin and François Truffaut.

Format: Hardcover
Actor and political activist Corin Redgrave - son of renowned actor Michael Redgrave, brother to Vanessa and Lynn Redgrave - is the subject of Kika Markham's memoir 'Our Time of Day'. Kika Markham, the daughter of actor David Markham, shares with the reader brief details of her early years, living in the East Sussex countryside at Lear Cottage with her artistic, politically-aware parents and her three sisters, and then moves swiftly on to Kika's adult years in 1960's London, where we learn of her acting roles, her love affairs and of her involvement with socialism and the Workers' Revolutionary Party (WRP). Although Kika Markham and Corin Redgrave knew of each other from their parents' friendship (David Markham acted alongside Michael Redgrave in 'The Stars Look Down') and also, of course, from the acting world, it was through their commitment to the WRP that they really got to know each other well and by the mid-nineteen-seventies they were romantically involved. Two children, marriage, holidays, various acting roles and further political involvement followed for Corin and Kika, and for many years their life together, although stressful at times, was very full and interesting. Sadly, however, a catastrophe was looming, and whilst Corin was delivering an impassioned speech in defence of a group of evicted travellers, he collapsed and suffered a major heart attack from which he never fully recovered.Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars A glimpse at a relationship 21 Oct. 2014
By dadadwee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a moving, intimate account of a harrowing time in Ms. Markham's life. Brave, honest and crammed with Englishness - in attitudes, habits and gentility, these two could never have sprung from anywhere but Britain during the last fading remnants of the sixties. Half in, half out of so many generational classifications, the book not only reflects the pain of catastrophic injury, but as social history opens a door into a closed portion of society - the 'theatrical elite' - and one courageous woman's fight to understand what Life has dealt her.
