BIG BLUE SKY!
A love affair of over 70 years with the county of Norfolk. It is the immediate post-war period, and there are escapades with mates Sludge, Beefy, Shadley and Roger the Rough, and childhood romances with Sandra, Carol, Ann, Sarah… Barrie examines, but not without humour, the Norfolk accent and vocabulary, and a few fascinating characters, typical of the county. There are brief punchy historical facts on Boudicca, Nelson, Allan Smethurst, Bernard Matthews, Scottish drovers, the Huegenots, coypus, the origins of the broads – and so much more.
BIG BLUE SKY – A Celebration of Norfolk should be in East Anglian book shops within a very few weeks. 216pp. RRP £9.95. Or I will dispatch copies to addresses within the UK for £10, to include p&p. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
