ignacio from barcelona here!

Hey Grace and Edwyn,

Ignacio Julia here, from Ruta66 magazine in Barcelona, trying to reconnect with you.

I'm reading Falling and Laughing just now and enjoying an advance copy of Losing Sleep.

Do you need my e-mail to answer or you already have it as I've registered?

Looking forward hearing back from you!

Ignacio

Falling & Laughing & Jean

To: Grace Maxwell & Edwyn Collins.

We are REALLY grateful to you both for your book – Falling & Laughing. Almost exactly a year ago my wife Jean fell down the stairs in our home on the left side of her head in March 2009. She suffered a fractured skull and a critical brain injury. A month ago she had a large titanium plate inserted. Why is there such an amazing improvement? Perhaps it is the more normal shape to her head; perhaps it is the greatly improved protection for her brain;… Continue

Martin Stephenson Biography

Hi

Hope this is OK. Last year Mark Bradley and myself had our biography of Martin Stephenson (he of The Daintees) published - The Song Of The Soul. Plenty of references to Edwyn and Postcard Records in there. Available from the link below. Hope you enjoy it.

Thanks

Rich

The Book

What a joy to read .A positive life affirming blast of a book .I would like to say i read it at one sitting but I can't as I as crying that much I had to put it down.This book helps fill in the missing weeks for me as I had a brain haemorrhage and have 3/4 weeks i can't account for. My wife says i should be grateful,that my only memory is 'I'm not going to die'. Anyway Grace this is the book that many of us wished we'd written about the experience but didn't have the talent or determination,so… Continue

Caught By The River

Shouty McShouty from Shoutington!

I visited my local library yesterday to return some books and Grace's book caught my eye as I was walking out.

I'm one of the people Grace describes in the book, someone who loved Edwyn's music but I wasn't a dedicated follower. I have often wondered why I hadn't heard any other records by Edwyn after the fantastic single 'Girl Like You' over the airwaves.

I'm halfway through the book today, much to the annoyance of my family as there is a mountain of housework…

Late entry from Latitude!!

Hi Edwyn and Grace,

Just want to say, “Thank you so much” for your book reading show at Latitude last year. I wanted to speak up at the session to praise your performances, but I didn’t try to, because I too suffer aphasia. Your story is so similar…

Great gig in Belfast

Just wanted to say how much everyone enjoyed the gig in the Black Box in Belfast, grown men were shedding tears! It was a very special night and will be one we will all remember. And it was great to listen to Edwyn and Grace at the book reading beforehand also, very funny and moving in equal measure. We hope you will come back to Belfast again soon!
