“The best friend a man could ever hope for” is a eulogy that belongs to Diana, Barry Norman’s beloved wife who he sadly lost in 2011 after over 50 years of marriage, love and friendship. Rare enough for a marriage to last for so many years, rarer still to read of such heartfelt love that strengthened over the years making her loss even harder to bear. She must have been a wonderful woman to receive such an accolade and through Barry Norman’s book we learn of what that relationship meant to him from the early days of family life through to the family dealing with her last illness. Touching and bittersweet, a portrait of a long – and happy marriage.

Synopsis

See You In The Morning by Barry Norman

Barry Norman is one of the nation's most popular and enduring broadcasters. Journalist, writer and presenter, he is best known for having fronted the BBC's flagship Film programme for more than 25 years. While working as a gossip columnist for The Daily Sketch, Barry met a pretty, talented young journalist called Diana Narracott, when they were sent to cover the same news story. Within a year they were married, their union lasting until Diana's untimely death in 2011. In this heartfelt memoir, Barry introduces us to the remarkable woman he knew so well and loved so deeply. He traces their careers and lives together, describing how Diana moved from being an accomplished journalist, to mother-of-two, to best-selling author. Through his writing, we grow to love Diana's irrepressible nature, fierce intelligence, her sense of fun and even her stubbornness. Writing in his entertaining, inimitable style, Barry shows how, like any couple, he and Diana had their disagreements but that the deep-rooted love and respect they had for each other ultimately ensured a long and happy marriage. With heart-breaking honesty, he shares the difficulty he and their family faced while Diana was fighting ill-health, as well as the pain he still feels at the loss of his wife who he describes as 'the best friend a man could ever hope for'.

About the Author

Barry Norman fell hopelessly in love with cricket while watching England play Australia in a victory test match at Lord’s in 1945. Despite a long flirtation with cinema (he presented BBC1’s Film programme from 1972 until 1998), he has remained true to his oldest flame ever since. As a member of the Lord’s Taverners, he has played with and against some of the great names of the game (including Ian Botham and Dennis Lillee). He was once the proud scorer of 1 not out in a match at the Kennington Oval.
