Wild Card : How I Learned To Be A Friend, Have A Friend & Finally Love My Birthday Paperback / softback



Martin Milnes was born in the wrong era - or at least that's how it seemed.

As a child he wore jazz-shoes to his junior school disco, expecting eight-year-olds to Mambo like the dancers in West Side Story ... but childhood and school days were no Broadway musical.

Yet once Martin emerged on stage, the jeering turned to cheering; the lonely void was filled by Hollywood stars of yesteryear, worshipped from afar.

When his world shattered, the stars were there for him; and this time in person.

The last surviving veterans of a glamorous era extended their guiding hands.
