Rising To The Surface (Signed)
Published: 1st September 2022
We follow Lenny through a period of great creativity – prize-winning tv programmes, summer seasons across Britain, the starring role in a Hollywood film, and stand-up gigs in New York. But with each rise there is a fall, the most traumatic being the death of his mother. But by the end of the book he has been able to rise through a sea of troubles and breaks out to the surface to accept the Golden Rose of Montreaux for his work in television.
With his customary wit and warmth, Lenny Henry charts the earlier parts of his acting and comedic career, taking in the creative and personal highs and lows in this wonderfully immersive memoir.
