It includes his greatest triumph: winning the hathornden Prize as a nineteen-year-old poet at Oxford, and becoming the toast of literary England. Looking back at the years that follow, Moraes tells of his marriage to the beautiful actress Leela Naidu, of his songs childhood, his increasing fame as a writer and his experiences as a journalist that took him to places as farflung as Bhutan, Chile, Vietnam, Israel and zaire.
