WILD CARD: How I Learned To Be A Friend, Have A Friend and Finally Love My Birthday

Voyage of self-discovery / Humour / Musical Theatre & Old Hollywood


Martin Milnes was born in the wrong era – or so it seemed.

Martin was different – that cat who walked alone. Birthdays, stingingly empty, held a horrific reminder that he possessed no talent for friendship – whilst Hollywood stars of yesteryear were worshipped from afar.

Martin sailed forth on a topsy-turvy expedition into friendship. When his world shattered, the last surviving veterans of a glamorous era extended their guiding hands. The wisdom, understanding and truths which they passed on completely transformed Martin’s life, outlook and spirit.

But the voyage of self-discovery was far from over …
