The work is the closest that Heinlein, an ex-naval officer, and prominent science fiction writer, came to writing an autobiography. The book contains a wide range of correspondence, notes, and memoirs edited by Heinlein's wife Virginia, and was published a year and a half after his death.

Grumbles from the Grave provides insight into Heinlein's writing process (and the editorial/publishing process with which he was often at odds). In addition, it contains evidence of his philosophy as applied to his life and personal opinions. Beginning with a short biography of Robert by Virginia, the bulk of the book consists of excerpts of correspondence from the period from 1939 to 1970, from when he began writing science fiction until the onset of his first major illness. There is considerable information provided into how the 13-year gestation of Heinlein's novel Stranger in a Strange Land evolved. Additionally, there is the original postlude to Podkayne of Mars and a discussion of cuts made to his novel, Red Planet.
