Empress of Ireland by Christopher Robbins

Book Description

Christopher Robbins was a down-at-the-heels freelance journalist in London when a "friend"an expat American drug dealer who masqueraded as a countlinked him up with an elderly gay Irishman, purportedly the "greatest Irish filmmaker ever"which turned out to be the case. Brian Desmond Hurst had made some thirty films in his eighty years (including A Christmas Carol, Tom Brown's Schooldays, Dangerous Moonlight, Simba, and Playboy of the Western World), and was on close terms with people such as John Ford, Laurence Olivier, Nol Coward, Sean O'Casey, Vanessa Redgrave, and a slew of other notables. Hurst immediately hired the young journalist to write the screenplay for his final work, a biblical epic about the birth of Christ, dubbed "The Box Office Blockbuster"and subsequently his autobiography"The Big Bestseller. " No reader can fail to become spellbound and laugh-out-loud by the wit, warmth of heart, sense of mischief, Celtic charm, and vast appetite for life present in The Empress of Ireland.
