Shane Spall has in effect written three books in one On the simplest level this is a tie in to the BBC 4 TV series a narrative of Shane and Timothy Spall s attempt to sail from London to Wales in their sea barge The Princess Matilda They are hilariously hapless on their first journey they don t make it beyond the Thames Barrier and Timothy takes a thorough crash course in navigation before they set out to sea They encounter beautiful moorings and full on prejudice and snobbery in eual measureThis narrative itself would have made for a good book Shane Spall s mercurial nature in contrast to Timothy s laid back nature and penchant for pink crocs is hilarious but Spall intersperses this story with the heartbreaking one of Timothy s battle with leukaemia and her diaries from nights sat by his bed when he hovered between life and death Shane had already lost her father and best friend to cancer and her words are honest and searingThirdly there are snippets of Shane s own life again written with unflinching honesty Of her previous life as a flower child of her drug addiction of the Welsh husband she lost and her experience of giving birth to their daughter Pascale These elements turn a very good book into a firm favourite and one that I read into the night I knew Timothy Spall from tv and film a respected and beloved actor and this book deepened that respect
