"An exceptionally vivid and penetrating insight into Hollywood film-making..." ObserverIn the summer of 1986, when Richard E Grant was cast as the lead in Withnail and I, his whole world shifted and he was set firmly on the path to international stardom. With Nails is his outrageous, irreverent and brutally funny account of that time and the years afterwards, of his self-doubt and anxiety on the route to Hollywood, and of all the extraordinary, mad, brilliant people in the film business. From drinking himself incoherent so he could film Withnail and I to a night spent in Paris's red light district with a world-famous couple, to working with Hollywood's biggest actors and directors, Richard E Grant - always eloquent, always honest - has documented, in his own inimitable style, what it is to become a film star. A rare classic, there is no book quite like it.PRAISE FOR RICHARD E GRANT"In these dashing diaries of his recent years in the movies, Grant shares with candour his wonder at this aberrant universe and its inhabitants" Sunday Times"Lively, hilarious memoirs . . . The lovably nervous, marvellously bitchy Grant is blessed with a fluent style, acid wit and the eternal Hollywood outsider's passion for name-dropping, rubber-necking and raspberry-blowing . . ."

    Dropped Names: Famous Men and Women as I Knew Them (tekijä: Frank Langella) (FemmeNoiresque)
    FemmeNoiresque: Grant's excellence as a character actor brought him work with modern cinema's finest on whom he slyly gossips as an "innocent abroad". His frankness probably lost him a role or two in the wake of this memoir. Langella is somewhat wiser in commenting only on his dead friends, lovers, co-workers and acquaintances. So no dish on Whoopi Goldberg, but indexed commentary on stars of Hollywood's Golden Age (*gold* to a movie buff like me), Broadway legends and the odd polician and Royal abound. Both are recommended for being pithy, a tad self-concious and quietly sensitive about the highs and lows of their profession.… (lisätietoja)

Wonderful use of language a twist on every page fully expresses what in my heart of hearts is the experience of almost any working actor.
The star of the cult classic Withnail and I offers “a refreshing combination of comedy, confession, and coruscation” in this memoir of the movie business (Kirkus Reviews).

Richard E. Grant’s acting career has included memorable roles in some of Hollywood’s most critically acclaimed films, including Robert Altman’s Gosford Park and Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula. But he attributes his success to his first film role, starring as a flamboyantly pathetic Shakespearean in the underground hit Withnail and I. As Grant explains, “I had no notion that, almost without exception, every film offered since would be the result of playing an alcoholic out-of-work actor.”

In With Nails, Grant shares his long, maddening, and immensely rewarding journey through the world of film. From the hell of making Hudson Hawk to befriending Steve Martin on the set of L.A. Story; and from eating spaghetti with the Coppolas, to window-shopping with Sharon Stone, and working with and learning from the best actors and directors in the business, Grant’s unvarnished memoir “is a biting and wonderfully funny look at the movie business by an actor who is as clear-eyed and observant about himself as he is about the craziness surrounding him” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

Read during Winter 2002/2003

The film diaries of Richard E. Grant, known to most for Withnail & I. Very funny, sometimes caustic and sometimes very personal. Extremely readable, even if you had never heard of Hudson Hawk and didn't know he was in Henry and June.

Richard E Grant writes as wittily as he speaks. You really get an insight into the vagaries of the film industry and the personalities of the actors, directors and producers he works with. Unfortunately, having read this book I really want to watch "Hudson Hawk" at some point, just to see how awful it really is. ( )

I just re-read the chapter on Hudson Hawk and it's as fresh and funny as it was 10 years ago. Grant is a brilliant comic actor raised in Swaziland and London. His diaries are full of his acerbic wit and incisive commentary on the Hollywood film machine and its players. Grant is very likable and compulsively readable. Enjoy! ( )
