This author 'can transform the bleakest moment with his warmth and wit. This is an extraordinarily funny account of a marriage based on love and on an exceptional sense of humour.'

'In 1971 Deric Longden's wife Diana fell ill with the mysterious disorder known as ME (myalgic encephalomyelitis), known in the US as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. She was unable to move without a wheelchair, and was in almost constant pain. Equally distressing, perhaps, was the fact that every doctor she saw was unable to diagnose what was wrong with her. Deric, devoting more and more time to looking after Diana, watched his business gradually fail, and had to neglect his developing career as a broadcaster. He became househusband, nurse and caretaker of the woman he loved.'; All of this author's books are highly recommended and we don't know why they aren't published in the US. This title seems to have gone out of print.
