  1. The thing I always admired about Neil was that he went to Cannes every year. But never actually went there. He stayed in a five star hotel in St Paul de Vence above Cannes and people would drive up through the hills to visit him. Invariably, the tab would be picked up by the Poisoned Dwarf, who was enamored of him. There aren’t many of us left.

    Prince of a man.
    Godfather of an entire generation of rogues, scallywags, and writers of very long copy.
    Thanks Neil.
