(1972- ) UK editor and author whose first novel, Me Cheeta: The Autobiography (2009) as by Cheeta, is an Apes as Human tale narrated by Cheeta (as impersonated by various chimpanzees in Tarzan Films from 1932), looking back on his life from the age of 76; the poignance of his love for Johnny Weissmuller (1904-1984) contrasts, at times savagely, with his Satirical portrayal of Hollywood (see California; Cinema).
