This book is a remarkable series of personal adventures, a lively and uninhibited account of the strange people, places and things that have fascinated Irving Wallace over the past twenty years. With insatiable curiosity he looks behind the scenes of such institutions as the Spandau Prison in Berlin; Rolls-Royce; the Nobel Prize award committees; the Baedeker Guides; the Orient Express; Sherlock Holmes and his real-life models; the Geisha Guild in Tokyo, the most unusual trade union in the world; Krupp of Essen; and the Agony Column of The Times. Here is a glittering display of the talent that liberated Irving Wallace from the treadmill of magazine feature-writing to become a seven-day-a-week Sunday Gentleman, with leisure to pursue his special interests - and to fashion them into a succession of world-wide best-sellers.
