This is the story of two men widely separated in age, one American and one British, with very different educational backgrounds, who became as close as any two friends could be. There were ups and downs in their relationship over the years, but overall it was an amazing adventure that brought great happiness to both of them. Their first meeting was in a hotel room in central London. Brian was looking for sex and Lee was looking for money, but each of them had a deeper need. Each needed a friend, a true friend. Brian needed a friend who would fulfill his physical needs but still would remain his friend. Lee needed a friend who would provide the financial support that he needed without making excessive demands and more important, would always show him respect. This memoir, which they wrote together, tells of the life of each man up to the time when they met and of how their lives changed afterwards.
