The book is the story of a young man, born just after the outbreak of world war two. It charts his growing up in North London in the forties and fifties, his diving enthusiastically into the swinging sixties, and his marriage, fatherhood and career in the seventies. Along the way, we meet all sorts of characters, more girls that you could shake a stick at, get immersed in amateur film-making, acting (in 'Alfie', amongst other things) and directing (a world premiere, amongst other things) in the amateur theatre, and working for a Hollywood film star. After many jobs in North London and the West End, he becomes a Sales Representative, and, with the help of one or two young ladies, eventually becomes a company director. The book ends at the beginning of the eighties, with our hero, not for the first time, at a crossroads . . .
