The beginning of the decade saw New Zealander Bill Gavin arrive in Europe from his home country to try to scratch a living as a race reporter, starting with the 1960 Monaco Grand Prix, and by the end of the decade he was manager of Ferrari's CanAm team in North America. Along the way there was Love, Life & Death, all colorfully told by a fine writer who knew the leading drivers very well indeed and has many stories to tell. This is a memoir from a golden age of motor racing - the 1960s - by a Bill Gavin whose anecdotes and reminiscences have never been told.
