Lenny Henry tells the extraordinary story of his early years and sudden rise to fame in his long-awaited autobiography. Today, we begin with one of his biggest inspirations – his mother.

The legendary actor, comedian and campaigner has graced our screens for over four decades. A co-founder of Comic Relief, he was knighted in 2015 for services to charity and drama.

Who Am I, Again is a poignant and hilariously observed self-portrait of growing up in the Midlands as child of Jamaican immigrants seeking, though not always finding, a better life. The book candidly documents racism and fraught family relationships, but ultimately celebrates how a working-class kid from Dudley made the big time with support from those around him.
