Jock Carroll [1919-1995] was a Canadian photo-journalist and war correspondent. This, his only work of fiction, was inspired by a photo shoot on the set of Niagara (1953) with Marilyn Monroe. His friend Stuart Keate [1913-1987] was a Canadian newspaper publisher and President of The Canadian Press.

Laid in to the book is an offprint from the May 1962 issue of Infinity, house journal of the American Society of Magazine Photographers. The offprint is a review of the book by one 'Titus Canby' -- almost certainly a pseudonym used by Carroll to push his own book: 'Titus Canby' was a character in an American comic strip called Bringing Up Fatherwhich was widely syndicated across continental America at the time. Also, the review is an absolute rave.
