i can't say i'm a huge autobiography person but this had me laughing and crying all within the space of one chapter and i just really love grimmy's way of storytelling - so heartwarming and fun like the man himself! Right now I've just got my exams back making me a senior journalist so the world is my oyster and who knows what's I've got ahead of me. From his move from Oldham, Greater Manchester, to the bright lights of London, to his 14-year career climbing to the helm of the.

Maybe it's because I've listened to him on Radio 1 since I was at school, but it felt more like a series of conversations with a friend in a pub rather than a formal memoir. Sometimes I felt like his descriptions felt a bit too literary for the type of book and trying to fit in too many adjectives, but perhaps this would be unnoticeable if reading it over listening. Thinking about those party years slightly gives me the ick today’: Nick Grimshaw wears jumper by Marni at mytheresa. Heart-breaking and heartening in equal measure, Nick will have you laughing out loud, feeling all the emotions and (potentially) having a good cry.By completing your purchase, you agree to Audible's Conditions of Use and authorise Audible to charge your designated card or any other card on file.

The problem with writing a memoir, found Nick Grimshaw as he started his, was that it meant facing himself.

For all the little queer kids feeling left out in suburbia, feeling not at the centre of the party, they can make their own party. One of those fearlessly honest books that manages to be moving and thought-provoking and funny at the same time.

It isn’t chronological like a traditional memoir, starting at birth and ending with death – I’m still (at the point of writing) very much alive – but snapshots of the formative moments of my life up to now, with coming-of-age tales that capture a moment or a feeling. I always want people,” whether listeners to the show, or his mum and aunts in a room of celebrities, “to feel included and welcome. A story I remembered, but only the part of it I had been privy to through social media six years ago.

However, when I saw that Nick Grimshaw was bringing out 'a collection of stories' about himself, I was intrigued.Reading about how he found his way in the media industry has made me excited for what I have to come in my career. i have been a fan of nick grimshaw for years, both his voice on the radio and his instagram stories cracking me up on the regular; to listen to him speak for six hours about the highs and lows of his life, the stories detailing how he got to where and who he is today was so special, not to mention, so fucking funny.

Grimshaw grew up in the town of Oldham, Greater Manchester and attended the University of Liverpool studying Communication and Media Studies.
