Here are the very personal diaries of Richard E. Grant's 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, and also a deeply moving portrait of his childhood and his love affair with Swaziland, where he was born and brought up during the last throes of the British Empire.

Through the mayhem - never-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 Walters - Richard E. Grant has written and reads, with characteristic humour and charm, an extraordinarily honest and revealing account of a labour of love and the realisation of a dream.

    " What a hoot this book was. Loved it. Definitely a hangover / holiday read. It reminded me why I lost interest in directing films in 3rd year uni. Oh and watch out for the diabolical producer in the book. What a scream. "

    " If I could, I would invite him round for a dinner party and just simply listen to all his stories. He's an absolute master of wit and as this details the insanely rough process for getting a film made, it's a worthwhile read for me and all my creative friends struggling to make dreams happen. "
