There is a book and a couple of movies about me.. but they've spelt my name wrong.  I think to protect themselves from lawsuit

(my surname is Malins; the name was also used for the French market for those silly plastic activity teddy bears you attached to babies' cots/ baths)

Yeah, I've had a book about beer published - with my actual real name on the cover and everyfink.

Hardly what you'd call "literature", though - it was a shitty commissioned hack job for which I got a flat fee* and lots of grief, and had very little control over the content.

d.

*ie no "royalties", which is a real shame considering it's been sold all over the world and has probably made the publisher loads of money.  :-\

Talking of beer, there is a beer with my full name literally written all over it. Well, on the pump at least. I've never sampled it as it's mostly only available in the west country, but you can bet your bollocks to a barn dance that it will be good  :)
Those wonderful norks are never far from my thoughts, oh yeah!

Well of course, my namesake used to be Culture Secretary, so was basically in charge of literature, so nyaaah.

However, he did (does) bat for the other team, so that's where the parallels end really.

Not sure about literature, exactly, but John Henry is the subject of several songs.
