The author was an impoverished writer in his twenties when he first stepped into the shabby Belgravia drawing-room of Ireland's most prolific film director. Brian Desmond Hurst was then eight years old. Robbins was asked to write the screenplay for the film, dubbed the 'Box Office Blockbuster', and later undertook to record and transcribe the director's life story. A friendship was born between the two men separated by nationality, sexuality, and fifty years in age, as the writer was drawn deep into Brian's world; a fabulous place inhabited by literary lions and thespian knights, eccentric aristocrats and feral rent boys, assorted publicans, celebrities, milkmen and sinners.
