Summary: A collection of travel pieces, this book contains a remarkable array of quirky, whimsical and singular individuals. Including such characters as the pensioner on a Saga holiday who decided to swim across the Amazon, this book sees the author meeting a number of undeniably famous people, Hollywood stars, legends of children's radio serials he had idolized in childhood, and even rock stars such as Mick Jagger. But his encounters with a celebrity have their own unexpected outcomes: Burt Lancaster rants to him about trans sexuality, Rita Hayworth is most worried about her neighbor's TV aerial, and a retired star of the silent screen turns out to live in Henley-on-Thames.
