Allen's book chronicles his time touring as an opera singer and offers insight into his creative process. The story of Sir Thomas’ early life as a boy in a small fishing village in northern England and his turn to a career as Britain’s premier baritone has been cited by playwright Lee Hall as the inspiration for his film Billy Elliot.
