A Young Man's Passage is Julian's telling of his own rise and fall as Britain's most famous, uncompromising queen.
After a happy suburban upbringing, only briefly ruffled by the brutality of the monks at his school, Julian packed his bags for shameless performance - and men. It wasn't long before he, along with his co-star Fanny the Wonder Dog, had become The Joan Collins Fan Club and the big time was just a mince away.
Fame became a mixed bag for Julian: while revelling in the rollercoaster highs, he increasingly suffered the compromises of celebrity. After the pain of losing his lover, Julian's life began to spiral out of control - and the rest, as they say, is fistory.
"An amazing story... a human testament worthy of a hundred of more luvy memoirs spouting self-congratulation."
(Andrew O'Hagan, Saturday Telegraph)
