A personal diary that charts the ups and downs of the making of Wah-Wah, Richard E. Grant’s debut directorial film, this memoir captures the work behind this labor of love and the realization and fulfillment of a dream come to life. As writer and director of the autobiographical film, Grant provides fascinating insight into the intrigues and agonies he encounters while filming, as well as 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. From never-ending financial pressures and hostilities with producers to the nerve-racking quest to persuade the King of Swaziland to grant permission to film in his country and the handling of a stellar cast—which includes Gabriel Byrne, Miranda Richardson, Emily Watson, and Julie Walters—Richard E. Grant has detailed, with characteristic humor and charm, the daily operations behind the creation of a major motion picture.
