Based on his Radio 4 series, Andrew McGibbon brings his sharp and witty attention to a group of people who spent time with legendary figures. Each interview gives the individual's unique account of their association and offers an intimate portrait that humanises the artist. Relieved of the burden of a biographer, these glimpses, full of anecdote and detail, show the subjects in a different light, close-up and often very personal. Because while the legends encountered may be or have been extraordinary people they still suffered ailments, drank to excess occasionally, bumped their heads and fell in love. Featuring Ernest Hemingway's La Secretaria, Johnny Cash's Tailor, Moazzem Begg's Lawyer, Tina Turner's Only White Dancer, Les Dawson's Gag Writer and a host of significant others, I Was Douglas Adams's Flatmate finishes with the author's own account, full of glorious and lurid detail, of his time as Morrissey's Drummer.
