Len Deighton: The short and simple answer is, my ignorance! Had I started writing after a creative writing course or a university degree in English Literature, Ipcress File would have been a more conventional book. As it happened, it started as an account of a man wandering through Soho, London as I did every day.
DD: Your production company produced the film for Only When I Larf as well as Oh! What a Lovely War. How did that come about?
