Mr Nobody; Almost famous, but not quite

By Desmond McGrath

Mr Nobody; Almost famous, but not quite Cover Image

His father, an Irishman, was on the run from the “Brits”. He took

refuge in Jersey C.I. where Desmond was born. The family

left the island when he was four, but retained strong ties and family

to this very day.

After the tragic deaths of his two young brothers at 17 and 27 he was reminded that you only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough. From humble beginnings as a butcher in Birmingham, he made himself into a relatively small but successful businessman, with a

chain of shops and houses to rent.

He took life by the scruff of the neck and lived a playboy life

of booze, women and fast cars. He has dived the oceans of

the world, travelled to all the places he ever wanted to see

and ticked all his boxes.

Retiring from business at 49, he turned to a new life of

songwriting, TV plays and a successful trilogy of Jack Reec


Once asked, “Is there anything you haven’t done?”

Thoughtfully he replied, “Well if there is, it’s because I

didn’t want to do it”.

Share the ride with him, on an exciting journey to far flung

exotic locations in this hugely readable and amusingly

written autobiography.
