I Love the Bones of You : My Father And The Making Of Me EPUB
â€˜A beautiful bookâ€™Â ZoÃ« BallÂ â€˜My father was an â€œordinary manâ€, which of course means he was extraordinary.' Be it as Nicky Hutchinson inÂ Our Friends In The North, Maurice inÂ The A Word, or his reinvention ofÂ Doctor Who, One man, in life and death, has accompanied Christopher Eccleston every step of the way â€“ his father, Ronnie.
In I Love the Bones of You, Eccleston unveils a vivid portrait of a relationship that has shaped his entire career trajectory â€“ mirroring and defining his own highs and lows, from stage and screen triumph to breakdown,Â anorexia and self-doubt. Eccleston describes how the tightening grip ofÂ dementia on his father slowly blinded him to his sonâ€™s existence, forcing a new and final chapter in their connection.
Told with trademark honesty and openness,Â I Love the Bones of You is a celebration of those on whom the spotlight so rarely shines, as told by a man who found his voice in its glare.
A love letter to one man, and a paean to many.
