Half the book is about Nick Love rather than Danny Dyer and the other half is just quotes lifted from interviews from the past.
What do we discover? Danny is West Ham until he dies, doesn't like Hungary or Vinne Jones, is real pals with Tamer Hassan (who is Millwall to the core) and loved Harold Pinter. Ray Winstone is God. Howden gives us a lot of Nick Love philosophising (a little goes a long way), defending the vision that gave us films like Outlaw, unspeakably awful to many, but revered with resentment by Dyer and Love. Most directors pay tribute to Danny as a laugh-a-minute team player. Gillian Anderson even sounds quite cheerful about rape-revenge saga Straightheads, surely a career nadir. What a laugh that rape and revenge saga must have been. Danny, in fairness, is never easy being caught up in on-screen violence and nowhere near as hard as the geezers he plays. There are gripes about fakes and money-makers. Nice chap, all in all. We need (or do we? ) an update.
