Here, too, is the story of his great love for a famous actress and the joy and pleasure they had together, as well as the sadness of their eventual parting. Somehow the author also ran a highly successful fish and game business in London, employing a team of handsome public-school boys to deliver the goods to the dining rooms. Unsurprisingly, the core of the enterprise was entirely based on well-bred bonking. Here the reader will also learn why a live Smithfield prize bull arrived in the kitchens of a famous advertising agency.
In the course of his extraordinary life the author has slept in the longhouses of Borneo with head hunters and guarded Hitler’s deputy, Rudolph Hess, in Berlin’s Spandau Prison. He has caught salmon in Russia’s bleak Kola Peninsula, marlin off the coast of Kenya, bone fish in the Bahamas, clap in Malaya, crabs in London – and hunted rats with as amusing and bibulous a cast of reprobates as one could meet.
By turns funny, outrageous, and poignant, the book is a salute to the independent life well lived, and a celebration of a certain type of character who is nowadays all too rare.
