About Dominic Holland

I have been a professional stand up comedian for over 20 years, working mainly in the UK but I have gigged all over the world. I have published two novels but the rights have since reverted to me. I have published many short stories and had columns published in various newspapers and on-line sites. I am married with four boys. My eldest son, Tom Holland is an actor. He played Billy in Billy Elliot the Musical in London's west end. He will appear as Lucas in the forthcoming feature film, The Impossible and as Isaac in the film, How I Live Now. Tom's success has spawned a blog and a book called Eclipsed - a story about a dad being eclipsed by his son in show business. Affectionately written by a dad who is bemused as he is proud.
I plan to publish Eclipsed as an ebook in early 2013. I have written a new novel called A Man's Life which I also plan to publish as an ebook and make my backlist and possibly other unpublished novels available also.

why and how I wrote A Man's Life
This is a short video explaining the rather extraordinary events and coincidences in my own life that have combined to give me the story for this novel. It took almost 10 years to write and was rewritten many times as the story developed and I hope this effort is reflected in your reading experience.

I've just read the book and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was very moving in parts and also funny. An excellent bedtime read - although you may stay up reading for longer than you planned!

I agree with David's review (below). A Man's Life is a truly moving book and a real page turner.

I'm sure it took a very long time to write so I'm almost ashamed that I read it in a couple of days, but that it testament to just how engrossing it is.

I really enjoyed reading A Man's Life. So much I ended up reading it until about 2 am in the morning as I wanted to read to the end of the chapter to see what happened and when I got to the end of that chapter I wanted to read to the end of the next one.

I won't give away the plot but it made me cry, it made me laugh and it is one of those books I know I will read again.
