This Heart within Me Burns - Crissy Rock : From Bedlam to Benidorm Paperback


Best known for her role in cult comedy TV hit, Benidorm and for playing Maggie Conlon in Ken Loach's remarkable film Ladybird Ladybird, Crissy Rock is a hugely popular actress and comedienne.

But Crissy's path to success was far from easy and her life has been plagued by trauma and turmoil.

Never has there been a more honest and disturbing biography ever written; never has there been so much to tell. Crissy Rock's poor but idyllic young life was plunged into darkness at the age of eight, when her grandfather began to abuse her both physically and sexually.

Pregnant and married to a violent bully at sixteen it seemed that trouble and turmoil would always stalk her.

Having finally escaped her violent marriage, Crissy began to turn her life around.

Having firmly established herself on the comedy circuit she was then cast in Ladybird Ladybird for which she won Best Actress at the Berlin Film Festival. This is one of the most astonishing books you will ever read.
