This is the story of Christopher Logue, poet and literary maverick, who counted Ken Russell, Arthur Miller and Marilyn Monroe among his friends. It tells of his South England childhood, his stint in the army, the years in Paris, offending T.S. Eliot and everything else, all in his own words.

Christopher Logue (1926-2011) was educated at Prior Park College, Bath, and at Portsmouth Grammar School. He served as a private in the Black Watch and spent sixteen months in an army prison. His publications include several volumes of poetry and a pornographic novel. The first collection of his reinterpretation of Homer's Iliad, War Music, was shortlisted for the 2002 Griffin Poetry Prize; Cold Calls, the fifth instalment of the War Music series, won the Whitbread Poetry Prize in 2005.Review:
'They don't get much better than this...Logue is a great storyteller.' Gerald Dawe; 'It's assumed nowadays that autobiography will uncover hidden areas of a life, be sexually candid and reveal its author to be vulnerable and self-doubting at heart. Prince Charming meets these requirements but achieves much more...It rescues from the wreckage of various phases and crazes (where is Jazz poetry now?) a man indisputably and agonisingly committed to his art.' Alan Brownjohn, Observer
