I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon

Actually you won’t….you’ll be completely alone…..no really…..really alone…..your name is Michael Collins You got to drive your mates to the party and then wait outside to pick them up and take them home.

Carrying the Torch is Michael Collins’ account of how he came to be the taxi driver for Apollo 11. How do you cope with “nearly being there” and then becoming the most invisible person in the universe as you disappear around the back of the moon.
