Following Bogarde from childhood through adolescence, to the beginnings of his budding career, A Postillion Struck By Lightning is a heartfelt memoir, offering insight into what created the drive and charisma that eventually made him a star. Dreamy, sun-soaked summers full of freedom and mucking about with his sister are mixed with holidays in France and rambling the countryside.

Writing plays instead of playing sports, Dirk's talents lie in the creativity of painting and expression rather than in the precision of maths or science, much to the growing concern of his parents. Packed off to live with relatives in Scotland, his father hopes that a proper Scottish education will equip his son to follow in his footsteps for a career in Newspapers.

In Scotland, Dirk must learn to defend himself, he must learn to sound like a native Glaswegian, and hide his intense homesickness. In essence; he must learn to act.

First published in 1977, A Postillion Struck by Lightning is written with irony and humour, tenderness and flair.
