We consider ourselves lucky and honoured to call Edwyn Collins a Heavenly recording artist. This book is written by Edwyn’s wife and manager, Grace, a lovely lady who always has a tale to tell.
This though, is one story that she wishes she hadn’t got to tell. It’s the one about coming home one Sunday afternoon in February 2007 and finding their son William in a state of high panic as his father lay on the floor with the signs of something seriously wrong.
Edwyn had had a brain haemorrhage. And then he had another one.
It get’s worse before it gets better but as I think you know it does get better. So much so, that Edwyn is currently in the studio making a new record. We hope to be putting it out in September.
The book is the story of a family rebuilding itself. Grace writes with honesty and anger and humour and love as she recounts the time spent not knowing what was going to happen next
