Product description

From the Back Cover

In 1971 Deric Longden's wife Diana fell ill with the mysterious disorder known as ME (myalgic encephalomyelitis). 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.

Diana's Story is told by a writer who can transform the bleakest moment with his warmth and wit. It is an extraordinarily funny account of a marriage based on love and on an exceptional sense of humour.

About the Author

Deric Longden began his writing and broadcasting career in the 1970s. His first book, Diana's Story, about the death of his first wife, was a bestseller. He followed this with Lost for Words, The Cat Who Came in from the Cold, I'm A Stranger Here Myself, Enough to Make a Cat Laugh, A Play on Words and Paws in the Proceedings. His first two books were adapted for television. Deric remarried in 1990, to the writer Aileen Armitage.

Deric Longden died in June 2013.
