“A heartwarming and hilarious read”

Eclipsed tells the fascinating true story of how UK comedian Dominic Holland found himself being upstaged by his eldest son, Tom Holland – probably best known for playing the web-slinging Marvel superhero Spider-Man.
I stumbled across this book by chance and absolutely loved it. Essentially two stories in one, the tale veers between Dominic’s career on the comedy circuit and young Tom’s first forays into the showbiz world of stage and film.
As a musical lover, I was really interested to discover more about what it takes to be cast in the title role of the West End musical, Billy Elliot, and was equally gripped by the behind-the-scenes account of the Oscar-winning film, The Impossible. Witty and painfully honest, Eclipsed is both intriguing and really funny. A great read.

“A great read”

A very readable insight into the film industry as comedian and writer Dominic Holland charts the luck and hard work of his son Tom as he moves from toddler dancer to the West End stage in the title role of Billy Elliot, then just as he is set to return to ‘normal’ life back at school, he is cast in his early teens in the true story The Impossible – how a family survived the 2004 Tsunami in Thailand.

Dominic reflects on the fact that his stand up comedy career has plateaued and his attempts at successfully submitting his own scripts to Hollywood are eclipsed by son Tom’s casting as the new Spider-Man.

An honest, funny and insightful story by a proud father.

“A testament to his talent of storytelling”

Having purchased this book from following Dominic’s blog, I absolutely love it! His perspective as a father is heartfelt, contributing to how personal and refreshingly honest Eclipsed is.

Reading about the work he has done over the years is fascinating – his resilience and enthusiasm for it is something to be admired. As someone who managed to stumble across Billy Elliot and The Impossible on TV, hearing the behind the scenes has also been a joy to read.

Written with great humour, honesty and immense pride for his family, this is a wonderful book and a testament to his talent of storytelling. I look forward to reading more of his work in the future and continuing to follow his blog.
