Hitler Needs You

by Jack Trevor Story

Hitler Needs You Synopsis

Horace Spurgeon Fenton has just turned 16. It will be an eventful year. He is about to discover jazz, sex and Hitler. Drawing on his own childhood, author Jack Trevor Story (1917-1991) has written a powerful, poignant, and funny memoir of of the 1930s, seen through the eyes of Horace, apprentice toolmaker. Story's early work was snapped up by Alfred Hitchcock for 'The Trouble With Harry', and more tv and film work followed. But Story poured much of himself into 'Hitler Needs You' and it contains some of his finest writing. An older Horace pops up again in two other books: 'One Last Mad Embrace' and 'I Sit in Hanger Lane'. Horace Spurgeon Fenton garnered much critical acclaim for Story 'one of the funniest writers we have', said the Sunday Telegraph.
