Product description

Review

‘We know what to expect from the autobiographies of most actors, I think: anecdotes, charm, more than mild self-satisfaction and faux-modesty by the bucketload.  But Christopher Eccleston is not most actors, and his autobiography is not most autobiographies. This is a superb book, full of revelations, as intense and tortured as its writer and not an easy ride at all.’  -- Marcus Berkmann ― Daily Mail

‘The book I’d most like to find under my tree is Christopher Eccleston’s memoir I Love the Bones of You, which talks about his beloved dad and Christopher’s history of anorexia and depression.  He was a guest on my show and made such an impact.’   -- Lorraine Kelly ― Woman & Home

‘The actors book prompted headlines because he writes of his struggle with anorexia but it is about so much more, particularly his relationship with his father, which has shaped his entire career. A million miles from the usual celebrity memoir.’  -- Books of the Year ― Mail On Sunday --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
