Barrie was born in Bournemouth, and had theatrical leanings at an early age. After National Service he came to London and trained at several theatres and tours. His first play ‘Teddy Boy’ toured in the fifties and his own coffee house was opened in 1960 at The Seven Dials in Soho. It became famous, and infamous, for the many characters it attracted. Amongst its many customers were Quentin Crisp, Simon and Garfunkel, Paul Simon, Lindsey Kemp, Wayne Sleep and many, many more!From 1972 he became well known as a theatrical agent as well as presenting many children’s musicals on tour. He also presented star concerts such as The Jessie Matthews Show at the Shaftsbury Theatre in the West End and Jim Bailey at The London Palladium. He has presented over fifty concerts with John Hanson, Frankie Howerd, Bob Monkhouse and many others. Lately he has toured his one man show and numerous ‘Songbooks’, mostly ‘West End to Broadway’, ‘The Cole Porter Story’, and others. He has written children’s musicals which have toured the UK and had his own gossip column in the late ‘Plays and Players’ magazine. He recently had his first novel published and is writing more projects. At the age of eighty-five he looks back over the years and tries to recapture the many excitements, victories and memories he has enjoyed.

After reading 'A Ticket To Passion' by the same author I thoroughly enjoyed this gentle 'feel good' book. Beautifully written and most enjoyable.

Synopsis

Emma, hale and hearty though she is, feels that her time is rapidly running out and she begins to reminisce upon the events of her life far, far less than ordinary. Love In The Afternoon encompasses her peculiar, yet highly significant affair, the marriage that is to end in tragedy, the birth of her twin sons and a loss and reconciliation that her wildest dreams could never have imagined. There is a late flowering of romance and passion, imbued with all the heady and intoxicating fragrance of...
