'Mr Story weaves a wildly funny escapade' Sunday Times Horace Spurgeon Fenton, fifty-something novelist and scriptwriter living in Hampstead with a flatful of nurses, suddenly finds himself entangled with Ariadne (the young daughter of a fading film star) in a fast-paced comedy thriller set amidst the dying echoes of the 1960s. Jack Trevor Story (1917-1991)was a prolific, and profligate, scriptwriter, novelist and journalist. Scripts for Danger Man, Dixon and Budgie, films for Anna Neagle and Spike Milligan and a still fondly remembered column for the Guardian scarcely do justice to his output. Hitchcock's film The Trouble With Harry was his, as was the prophetic Live Now Pay Later. Story's alter ego Horace Spurgeon Fenton appears in three books including I Sit in Hanger Lane and Hitler Needs You. But in One Last Mad Embrace Jack Trevor Story is at the top of his considerable powers. Although well-received at the time (1970), One Last Mad Embrace was out of print for years, a rarity even secondhand. Jack Trevor Story was married three times, divorced at least once and had eight children. And bankrupt twice. 'A Proust of the working class.' Michael Moorcock 'In the shambling talented Horace he creates at last a rounded tangible figure' Sunday Times 'One of the funniest writers we have ' Sunday Telegraph further information at www.reinkarnationbooks.com
