The inspirational memoir from the star of OUR WELSH CHAPEL DREAM and THE GREAT POTTERY THROWDOWN Readers LOVE Boy In A China Shop: 'What a brilliant book.

Keith is so charming and funny and my goodness what a hard worker.

I loved it. Get it and read it - enjoy.' ?????'This book was enlightening and entertaining, full of laughs and heart. And of course with Keith, there's always going to be tears.' ????? 'Really inspiring and relatable. A great read.' ?????'During downtime on the pottery throwdown Keith made my hair curl with some of his tales - he's a great raconteur and recounts his story in this book as he does in real life - with joy, charm & mischief.' - Sara CoxBallet dancer.

Front man in an almost famous band. Judge on The Great Pottery Throw Down. How did all that happen?'By accident mostly. But I always say we make our own luck. What if an art teacher hadn't given me a lump of clay?

What if my band had properly taken off? What if I hadn't taken a photograph of a bowl to the buyer at Heals in London?

What if she'd hated it? Or hadn't seen it... Every chapter of my book is based around an object (usually a pot) that's been significant in my life.

It's just a trigger to let me go off in a lot of different directions and tell a few stories.

A lot of stories. Dyslexia. The art teacher who changed my life. My Mother. My Father. A life-changing job interview with a man who lay under his car throughout. *That* video. (If you don't know what I'm talking about, a quick search of 'Keith Brymer Jones Adele' should do it.)'The end product?

A warming, clever memoir of Keith's pottery life with some very loud music, some pretty good dancing, and a lot of throwing, fettling and firing.

Oh ... and a good dose of anxiety.
