Biography & Memoir • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Actor Richard E. Grant delivers his touching memoir with a combination of honesty, humor, and hope. Grant takes listeners into his long, loving relationship with his late wife, Joan Washington, from their first meeting through her treatment and eventual death from cancer. When he talks about his first meetings with Joan, a well-respected dialect coach, Grant sounds shy, impressed, and madly in love with the woman who changed his life. Talking about his career, we hear self-deprecating humor, and while he doesn't name-drop, he offers some surprising anecdotes about colleagues. Most moving are his remembrances of Joan, their daughter, and their time together after her cancer diagnosis. Grant's heartfelt exploration of love is devastating, funny, and not to be missed.
